How does the title help you. It was a 6 moves puzzle. It is complex.

a little dancing puzzle, no?... white is playing with black... fooling around with it... like a cat pouncing on a mouse and playing with it before eating it... black is rather dodging the blows... until, finally... HE IS CAPTURED AND KILLED!!!!!


Not the right description I would say. Is the mouse going to kill a cat if the cat stopped threatening mouse even once?

After the first move 1. rxf7+ 1....rxr then white has to force mate or he will be mated himself.


Even if it is not Rxf7, the black pawn at g2 would gxf1+. So, white needed to check from the first move.

Heavy sacrifices in return for a checkmate... I wouldn't play this against a strong opponent... but nice combination.


I was always under the impression that the point of the game was to win (via checkmate or resignation).  We have to be willing to sacrifce everything to secure this end.  Regardless of how strong the opponent, black loses in this situation if white sees it.  Otherwise white loses.

 move 4 why would the black king go to h7 and not g7?


It doesn't help Black's situation

4....Kh7

5. Qxf7+  Kh6 (if 5...Kh8 6. Qg8#)

6. Qg6#

there is another easier way  (e6-g6   e4-g6    f1-f8 )


White has no answer for 1. Rg6+ Kh8

Black is not obligated to take the checking piece.
