Why so late again?
We also have:
2. Rh6+ Kg7
3. Qg6+ Kf8
Excuse me Willyswinner, when2. ....kg7, white is being checked by the rook behind the Black king
First page! Nice puzzle ....
first page again.... nice puzzle but came late
Ahhh.... I missed that too. I was thinking of Willyswinner's solution.
The pg8N move was also an obvious "classic puzzle" move, but the (wrong) solution above just seemed so much more straight-forward.
It took me way to long to work out why 1. Rh6 isn't checkmate. I thought I was losing my mind for a minute there. Good lord. Coffee!
That said, the actual solution is forcing in all kinds of interesting ways that never seem to turn up in my games.
Pressure+, Pressure+, Pressure+, Mate. Good Puzzle.
1st Page?...Everyone must be on the road for The Holidays....Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to ALL!
Actually, there is mate in 2:
yeah .. ur ryt mike!.theres a 2 move.. :))
1 ... Kg7+ is discovered check. Read post #5.
Nope - After 1 R - h6+, 1 ... k x g7 uncovers a rook check on the white king which must be dealt with.
Why doesn't this appear on the chess.com front page today?
ugh i didnt promote to a knight
Dang it. Still, good tactic.
