    Really enjoyed that puzzle!

    what's wrong with 6.QN6? (Qg6)

  • #54

    Another solution would have been

    1Rxf6,,,Px62Qg7#

  • #55

    just wanted to know if 1. Rxf6 isn't better

  • #56

    I recon 6. R-F8 is mate, bbut I'm probably wrong.

    What is wrong with RxB threatening Q-G7 mate

    Knight takes the Queen :)

    Knights cant move diagonally

    *facepalm*

    If white plays Rxf6, then black replies, Nxg6. No knight is moving diagonally here.

    Oh I am a dummy. Why is it that you see the attacking move but forget defence?

  • #58

    cool

    Weird title

    What is the "Missed Opportunity?"

    I expected black to move 6. ... Kf8, but white would have answered 7.Qf5+ and after 7. ... Qf7, 8.Qxf7#

    I chose 1.Bg7+, because my queen was en prise, and after that the moves were quite straight forward, though I struggled on the fifth move, deciding which piece to use in capturing the knight at f7.  It was ony after the fact that I realized how useful it was to have my rook up there on the seventh rank.
