Why not 1. Re7 for Black?
Difficult, but the game is in many books.
How is this nice at all? The whole time white could have lost the queen without any trade
Because if the black Queen at any point takes the white Queen, it is a back rank mate in two with the white Rooks. The black Queen is desperate not to be moved off the a4e8 diagonal and loose defence of her Rooks.
wooooooooooow!!SUCH A NNNNNICE PUZZLE............not many of dem can play like this
The idea behind it is quite simple, but the play itself is amazing.
Very nice puzzle. Hard to see all the moves.
what the crap was that.I hate this puzzle.
g6, ... and would see, ...
that was a nive maneuver from white. difficult.
1.Qg4 Qb5 2.Qc4 Qd7 3.Qc7 Qb5 4.a4 Qxa4 5.Re4 Qb5 6.Qxb7
I don't quite understand the puzzle. Why couldn't the white queen just take one of the black rooks. Even if the queen was defending the rook, wouldn't white get the same back rank mate with the two white rooks?
what up...hardest puzzle ive seen in a while
