    Ridiculous, and I can't see this one benefitting me in any way.


    Same here, these puzzles are unrealistic... Who thinks 7 moves ahead???

    hard

    It's not so complicated to follow moves here, but too recognize position in game - for me impossibile :(

    But what if 6. ... Kd6 ? Could he escape then? I think he can :)

  • #164

    good one! :D

  • #165

    impossible to scape ... very good :)

  • #166

    very good one! best in awhile

  • #167

    ok, so-so

  • #168

    hard with a rich taste that the person who made this is probably very good

  • #169

    Tedious...

    Could you not move

    Bishop(W)   c-6 -> d-5
    King(B)   f-7 -> g-8
    Queen(W)  d-5 -> d-8

    Check in 2?

    Sacrificing the white-squared bishop was a very interesting move... yet it was necessary to force the mate. I like it!

     That's not the only move black could make in response to Bishop(W) c6 to d5. Black would still be able to defend its king using his pieces.

    this was a really hard. didn't realize that it was mate in 7. in real game I would settle for taking rook & mate later.


    I think if you took the Rook (6. Qxa7) Black would respond 6. ... Qd1+ and force a perpetual check draw.  No "mate later."
