on the first page.......solved it but sill figuring out why black queen not took white queen in first move. lol
because if black queen did that, white rook would have instantly checkmated by capturing black rook. White pawn prevents black king from escaping if white rook captures black rook.
I had a hard time with the first move for some reason, but after that things fell into place.
why didn't the blak queen take the white queen in the first?
because white would follow with rxf8, which would be checkmate. it is very tempting to take the free queen...but it's bait for a much bigger move...mate
good not so good enough...
Giambattista Lolli checkmating pattern in action.
cause when white rock takes black rock its checkmate
rook takes rook mate
Simple is as simple does - but not all that simple really
