    I think 1. Bb5+ is better... No ?

    If 1. ... Kd1, 2. Nf3+ wins. If 1. ... Kd2, 2. Nf3+ wins too. If 1. ... Ke3, 2. Nec2+ wins. And of course if 1. ... Qc4, 2. Bxc+ wins.

    No, 1Bb5+ is worse as 1. ..., Kd1, 2. Nf3+, fxg1+, 3. Nxg1, Qe6+ winning a knight and at least getting a draw.  Go back through the comments and you'll see.

    this is silly. Why sac the queen if all u gotta do is Be5 which leaves the black King access to only the d2 or e3 squares which are both open to Knight forks of the black king and queen 

  • #185

    White can start with Bb5 and whatever position king moves theres a way to remove the Queen. I dont understand why white has to sacrifice its queen.

    That was a tricky one - at least I figured out the fork with the night.  I finally got to do one!

    This problem isn't yet over.

    White has Knight, Bishop & King VS King 

    This is going to be very difficult.
