 Clever chess.com. I also thought this was the same puzzle as yesterday...just with a different title; but that g-pawn is one square down. So I suppose when you compare the two, the previous puzzle reflects the missed opportunity to mate in 2 moves as this one clearly demonstrates.

I feel so stupid. I thought this was the same problem from yesterday and they did not post anything. I was watching tv in the middle of the night and thought I could post it in the first ten this time. I was totally fooled. Anyway, this puzzle is really nice. It took me about 5 min to get the answer but gave a lot of satisfaction after figuring out. It was nice that they did not post the minimum number of moves.

How to solve a daily puzzle:

1) sacrifice your Queen

2) look for easy mate.


You are right about sacing Q to solve daily puzzle,as was the case again today,Incredibill taught me that about puzzle,and it ussually works about 99% of time,but today I didn't take the sac the Q route,did not think it was necasary today,I know in real game I do not think i would sac Q,there were other lines to follow to mate,so I tried other line I thought had mate possibillities without sacing Q,but I was wrong,so I plan on sacing Q again when in doubt,good advice for everyone on sacing Q,most people who do puzzle know that,but thank's for your advice


Check the post #32. There are other lines for check mate in 3.
