don't know easy but first move sets it up the rest fallinto place now that was easyer

all these people that say easy to everthing must be chess masters 

How come I don't see them in the world of masters

Qxf7

Once again we lead off with a queen sacrifice.  Pretty obvious that, with black poised to checkmate in one move, every white move must ba a check, and Qg8+ is the only check available to white.  Then, with King a g8, white can check with his two knights, and in one he draws off the f8knight, enabling white's back-rank attack with his rook.

I wonder if I whould have found/played the right moves had I not seen that black was ready to mate on his first unforced move.

Good game and twist on a standard theme.

Qxf7


 1. Nxf7? Rxf7  2. Qxf7?? Qxg2 checkmate, so White not only fails to win in the required number of moves, but loses right on.

Damn, you are right. Got taken away by those two knights I guess. Thanks!

ok so what do you do if the rook takes the queen on step 2?
