good problem. I don't know how I miss some of these.
-3 for solving. She be a harsh mistress.
It would be nice to show the whole finish, the queen sacrifice and the checkmate!
The flashy queen sacrifice was played in the game by Cavallo, and I believe that was entirely fitting and aesthetically pleasing.
The tactic has to end since there are multiple ways to solve.
It's worthwhile to take a peek at the source game. I think you'll like it.
This one was quite good!
The problem with continuing it is, you do not need to sacrifice the Queen to win... You could, but it's either Bishop or Queen that does it. Since there's no "alternative right solution", it would be unfair to arbitraily pick one or the other.
Definitely, Queen sacrifice is the most beautiful. It shows to the oponent that you are 100% confident that you already beat him
Lawdog, thanks for pointing us at the interesting source game. With the benefit of knowing how it ends, what leaped out to me was white's vulnerability on the a2/g8 diagonal and the e8/h5 diagonal right from move 3.
cool! I was hoping for the Q sac
won't let us finish to mate, because there's more than one mate, you can Check with your Queen, and let his Knight take it, and mate with your Bishop, in the same number of moves
Black's going down quickly.
yup....+16 and 0:5
