Another post from the Tactics Toddler!
Well, this has been one tiring week! Despite having a day off Monday for Labor Day, my Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings were packed so I haven't had a chance to practice my tactics all week. (I have been chatting with coworkers during lunchtime of late rather than working on tactics). So, typical Cris Angel, if I stay away too long, I am quite rusty... I was getting several tactics wrong and missing several that I think I should have gotten a bit easier (Don't you just HATE it when you have the correct idea but move a piece to a wrong square??)
I dare hesitate to say the name of this motif. It might give away the puzzle.
Again, this isn't too terribly difficult for experienced players who are pretty good at tactics-- but I'm still working my way up the ladder to becoming better at tactics.
Let's just say I let out a nice high note when I got this right. I had the initial idea correct, but didn't visualize it all the way. I wound up going with my instinct/gut and got it correct! Woo and hoo!! There's a little something interesting about this pattern that I'll explain in the puzzle. :)
As always, let me know how you did.
