Why not 1.Qxc5 Rxc5 2.Rf8+ Kg7 or (Kh7) 3.R1f7++
Things doesn't go like that. Black will response a strategic deffensive move:
1. Qxc6 Be6
So, it wouldn't be a mate in three.
Check my comment. Be6 is also not much better.
Nice one i was struggling on the first move nice queen and rook team work!! and nice sacrifice by rook!!
I like the added annotations because it explains intentions behind the maneuvers. I hope Chess.com will inclued more in these positional studies.
Hola,me gustaba mas tomar la reina,para luego matar con las dos torres.
very nice puzzle.
Sometimes, the solution stares you in the face but, there is a tendency to over complicate things when there appears to be possible alternatives. As with this puzzle !
Amazing how manipulating the opponent with a forced sac puts the opponent in the position for the kill. But starting with a simple QXQ trade would work as well.
what about 1.Qxc6 Rxc6 2.Rf8 Kg7 3.Rf1 to f7#
Please tell me why I lost this game
