    I guess.


  • #104

    Mighty fine.

  • #105

    The bishop/rook mating position seems faily common in these puzzles but I seldom use it in my games.  Probably one of the reasons I am not a better player!

  • #106

    good one.   think moving the bishop first would be equally effective.

  • #107

    I like these puzzles that involve giving up your queen because that thought never accures to me in a game so it causes a new train of thought.

    B to F6 also works as the first move before White Q takes G6 pawn

    I think ...d5 means this does not work.  This unpins the f pawn and makes the queen sac useless.

    When in doubt, sac the queen.

    Too true.

    Looked at this puzzle for a few minutes this morning and could not get started,

    Then ! - I remembered that this was Chess.com....

    So I tried trashing my Queen as quickly as possible,

    and gee-whiz, wadda-ya-know, the mate immediatly fell into place.
