I hate when people say, "too easy!" because sometimes they are somewhat easy, but it makes me feel like a noob. I haven't played chess in a fewmonths so im nto really good anymore ^.^ ughhh

why not 2 Nf6?

2.Nf6 blocks white's open f file and since it isn't a checkmate, it allows black to launch his attack by:

2. ...Bf4+

3.g3 Bxg3+

4.Kg2 Qf2+

5.Kh3 Qh2#

Welcome to reply for any faster mates regarding this :)

You have to find a way to checkmate with check every move. If not Black has either ...Qf4+ or ...Bf4+ (and maybe even mate or perpetual check)!

Your right,but I do not see any perpetual check,depend's what white move's on move 1,Qd8+ never give's black a chance to get out of mate,nice job!!!

If White blunders with 2 Nf6?? Black has at least perpetual check beginning with 2...Bf4+ indeed there is checkmate: 3 g3 Qxg3+ 4 Kh1 Qh2# (3...Bxg3+ 4 Kh1 Qf3+ 5 Kg1 Qf2+ 6 Kh1 Qh2# is also possible.) (By the way with 3...Qf2+ you'll have a perpetual check!)

The puzzle above came from this game:

1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bb5 a6 4. Ba4 Nf6 5. O-O b5 6. Bb3 Bc5 7. c3 d6 8. d4 Bb6 9. Be3 O-O 10. Nbd2 Bb7 11. Re1 exd4 12. cxd4 Nb4 13. Qe2 c5 14. a3 Nc6 15. d5 Ne7 16. Bg5 Ng6 17. a4 c4 18. Bc2 h6 19. Be3 Re8 20. Qf1 Bxe3 21. Rxe3 Qb6 22. Rea3 Rac8 23. axb5 axb5 24. Bb1 Ra8 25. Rxa8 Bxa8 26. Bc2 Bb7 27. Ra2 Qc5 28. Ra5 Nf4 29. Ba4 Qc7 30. Rxb5 Ba6 31. Rb4 Qc5 32. Bxe8 Qxb4 33. Bc6 Qxb2 34. e5 c3 35. Qxa6 c2 36. Nf1 c1=Q 37. g3 (and the puzzle begins on Black's 37th move.)

37...Qxf2 ch! 38. Kxf2 (38. Kh1 Qg2 # 0-1) 38...Ng4 ch 39. Kg1 (only move) 39...Qc5 ch 40. Kh1 (40. Ne3 Qxe3 ch & mate to follow) 40...Nf2 ch 41. Kg1 (only move) 41...N2h3 double ch 42. Kh1 (only move) 42...Qg1 ch 43. Nxg1 (only move) 43...Nf2 # 0-1. Check out all the Knights. A spectacular double-Queen sacrifice that leads to a checkmate!

Very nice!
