Easy puzzle for me
yesh um also did it..:)
Is it me or are these puzzles getting easier and easier?
Hey fella, I think there are "easy puzzle days" and "hard puzzle days"..
But I just.. think. >_<
good one indeed.
wouldn't it simply be mate by moving the knight again, since it's a double check and the king has nowhere to run?
Straight to the point. Thanks for a good puzzle.
Look at the black queen! Only moving the knight again is not enough! You have to block the black queen again!
fbaski, not only 2 d7 is a solution! Also 2 e7 leads to the same result (queens) but defends g6!
Easy one, but im sure some people went the other way, with a check moving the Knight to d-6 going after the Black Queen also.
Variants: 2.Bg8+ ... 3.Nf7x
Not at all: 2 Bg8+ Kh8 3 Nf7+ Kxg8! Oops! And now Black wins! As i already mentioned on page 2 (post #27) ...
Sort of a strange situation, how does the knight even end up in that position? Any prior position would seem improbable
Maybe from f3-g5 - when Black's h-pawn was still on h7 (threatening mate on h7 and perhaps still Black's queen on d8). Resulting in the following sequence: -1 Ng5 h6 0 Nxf7 Qe8
I hate when that happens... I tried move 2 and 3 multiple times and it kept saying it was incorrect. Does that happen to anyone else? I finally give up and lo, my first attempt was the correct one!
nice & happy valentine
