    The h-file Mate!  Thanks for the lesson!

  • #165

    I absolutely agree with Jam35.  I don't know why any player would play H7 over F7.

  • #166

    straightforward

  • #167
  • #168

    Tough puzzle :$

  • #169

    nice

  • #170

    easy-ish

  • #171

    Rxh7 followed by Qxg6 also works, I believe.

    Bishop on C4 would kill the king if you moved the pawn on F7

  • #173

    Easy one.

    I have noticed that the puzzel was just like one I had in tacticts trainer and one of the stories on the front page from just a few months ago, so for me it was easy

  • #175

    easy, but the queen sac is dumb because black can always just thwart it.

  • #176

    obvious

  • #177

    Nice problem.  Always strange to sac the queen though.

    Thanks.

    Wink   GOOD

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

    How do you figure that?

    1. Bf6      Qxg4,  now what?
    2. Qxg6+  Qxg6,  and the attack is busted.
