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?

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

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

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!
