not an easy one...
this is a good puzzle...
Very Hard Puzzle.. I had to use help every step of the way, but seeing the principle behind it, I like it.. Hopefully with more experience I'll be able to spot these things for myself
most diffiicult puzzle I've ever seen
Very easy... but only because it's a very famous game and I've seen it before, otherwise I wouldn't have got any of the moves.
quite difficul, but okay
Difficult puzzle, even after you realise that the idea is to deflect the black Queen off the a4-e8 diagonal (and hence weaken the defence of the rook on e8). But I did not understand why 4.a4 instead of 4.Re4 straightaway?
The white had a great idea!
This is one of the better puzzles I've seen here!
DIVERSION: Fathom the concept!
wow i need to go reset my brain now. I could understand the whole concept of baiting the Queen off the diagonal, but just couldn't find that last move.
Have you seen someone go through so much effort to sacrifice their queen. Nice
This's a very strong example to illustrate ( deflection tactic)
needs help 2 solve this puzzle...hard one...
Very good,once you have your head round moving the opposition Queen it all makes sense--easy with hind sight!!!
white desparate to corner the king even with the sacrifice of the queen... a really good puzzle so for seen!
Nice one :)
