    hi

  • #43

    this is a good puzzle...

  • #44

    nice one

  • #45

    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

  • #46

    most diffiicult puzzle I've ever seen

  • #47

    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.

  • #48

    quite difficul, but okay

  • #49

    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!

  • #51

    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.

  • #54

    Have you seen someone go through so much effort to sacrifice their queen.  Cool   Nice

  • #55

    This's a very strong example to illustrate ( deflection tactic)

  • #56

    needs help 2 solve this puzzle...hard one...

  • #57

    difficult

  • #58

    Very good,once you have your head round moving the opposition Queen it all makes sense--easy with hind sight!!!

  • #59
