knight takes bishop (check), then queen to h7 check mate

If 11.Nxf6+ then black can reply with 11...gxf6 and now white cannot mate with Qh7 because black's queen is protection h7.

Note that this is why Thomas' 10th move was 10...Qd8e7. He foresaw your line. What he missed was that if you change the move order then the same idea now works!

I page

I now practice working out my moves, in my head, prior to moving a piece. This was a great exercise for the mind. I likes.

It took me too much time to see the obvious.

very easy

easy puzzle

It is mate if you do 0-0-0 in the last move.

good!

very easy.

PUZZAL OF THE DAY-----SOLUTION----1.RF8 AND 2.Qxf8

First of all what is white's first move?you forgot to mark down 1.Qa8+...Rf8, 2.Qxf8#,it looked confusing!!!

Can you create yhis position in 4 moves?

Ah yes, thanks I missed that one. A very nice check mate anyway, twisted and tedious, it must have been enjoyable
