BAH...i THOUGHT THE PAWN WAS GOING THE OTHER WAY LOL
lol i did too
stupid me also...
thought it might be also, had to look at the rank#'s to see where white started
Get_lost, I think you need your rooks lined up to take the pawn that is threatening to promote on d7. After Kc7, for instance, Rxd7+.
@TheMouse - I got it wrong as well, but if you take a look at the variations you win the pawn immediately with the correct line. You are still winning with the move that we both played but best is best.
add me to the list of wrong pawn direction
I was also going into the wrong direction...time to take a vreak ... I guess
Solved it in the first try, it almost got me confused but I just looked at the numbers on the board, the 7th rank for black pawns
i enjoyed this one
Pin it and win it!
Remember, the enemy's gate is down.
I just hate boards like this, when you have to guess which way the pawns can move.
YOU are always on the bottom in Tactic Trainer.
can you take with the other rook?
I guess doing these tactics is like orientating yourself to the compass directions when first looking at a map. you would always do that, so you know where you're going. same here.
Oh dear, I got that pawn totally wrong as well. I thought e6 was totally out of question because of the capture....that wasn't there
