I agree with u mastermind_3. I will try to change.
really cool puzzle
This was indeed a puzzle par excellence. I don't think an ordinary player or a novice would ever be able to discover a move like Rh8+(!!). Such puzzles are always beneficial as they compel one to think creatively and make good use of one's mind.
Looks awfully familiar, or maybe just déja vu. Nice all the same.
The pawn is pinned by the Bishop, cheers, John C
please explain to me why the king's pawn didn't capture the white queen which could have prevented checkmate?
Nice pined pawn. Fastest solve for me. It's Chess baby!
Geez... took me about 10 tries to finally figure it out. I play a lot of tactics but I cannot seem to see things like this.
Any suggestions on how I could get better at seeing simple tactics like this better?
Seriously, I play strategy games.
Were you simply agreeing with me, or are you suggesting strategy games? :-)
wow didn't see the pin
