    I think I got all the alternatives, let me know if I missed anything.  Great puzzle with some beautiful sacs!

    I got it wrong for the first time once at first and once at fourth. Otherwise, pretty cool puzzle. I want to post alternatives like you did. How can I do that?


    Press icon of a small board left top, and follow. Copy fen-pgn-or use blanc board.

    Position, game or a puzzle. Try and u will find out

     

    when board is done, press insert. After submitted, u still can edit your diagram

    For this diagram i have chosen blank board and a Puzzle chapter. Good luck!


    I think I got it. Promote variation button in the analysis board is the key. I could not figure out how to use it before. Now, I will start posting alternate moves. Awesome! Thanks for your help.

    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.

    Thank you very much suncountrynwa.

    I must admit this was the most difficult one.
