why not 1Qh6 and then 2Qxh7 or 2Qxg7 would be checkmate.
black would mate. rook to e1
easy puzzle harder please
Strange puzzle, sode1
Do you serve whipped cream with your Sundaes?
That's what I was trying to do. That was the best move.
Nice, pretty challenging I thought.
if you go 1. Qh6, the response Re1# ends the game with you losing as white. You must check the king every move to prevent that.
too easy, could've been done without sacrificing the rook..
No, it couldn't have. If the queen moved first then white loses with the rook coming down to checmate.
why take the rook. it prevents checkmate
