    Hey fella, I think there are "easy puzzle days" and "hard puzzle days"..

    But I just.. think. >_<

  • #145

    good one indeed.

  • #146

    wouldn't it simply be mate by moving the knight again, since it's a double check and the king has nowhere to run?

  • #147

    Straight to the point. Thanks for a good puzzle.

  • #148

    easy.

    Look at the black queen! Only moving the knight again is not enough! You have to block the black queen again! Wink

    fbaski, not only 2 d7 is a solution! Also 2 e7 leads to the same result (queens) but defends g6! Wink

  • #151

    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.

    Not at all: 2 Bg8+ Kh8 3 Nf7+ Kxg8! Oops! And now Black wins! Laughing
    As i already mentioned on page 2 (post #27) ...

    Good!

    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 Laughing

    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!

  • #156

    easy

  • #157

    nice & happy valentine Smile

  • #158

    only in two .....

  • #159

    Cool

  • #160

    Knight opens the door for the Queen like a true gentleman...
