RookPFeynman

Nice and easy!

that was easy, even for me. first i placed the rookie f on b1. Like InterracialMarriage

Then i realized that the king could escape on d8 and i understood the motives of that puzzle. It showed me that losing a rookie in this situation is necessary to keep up pressure and capture the king so that the second rookie could come in action to finaly open the door for the queen. Minimize the possible moves of your opponent.

Im happy, because there are many things i can learn on this page and maybe sooner or later i become a better player to beat my stepfather. I think he is about 1700 or something like that.

Haven't solved it yet, but what about Rook to A7 followed by Queen to A8? Checkmate I thought.

The_Impaller

Solved - the actual solution is much more long-winded then mine I think.

Rook Sacrifice leading to checkmate administered by the Queen at a8.  Thanks for the lesson.

Even though I solved the puzzle, there is an inner emptiness in my soul. I am not on the first page. One day maybe but not now. I bow my head in quiet resignation.
