14 Hours ; Alice I am going to send you to the moon.
Nice one, no need to kill the queen in the process just a poor rook.
easy! rook sacrifice is necessary to openthe file g for the queen.
Willmac12. this because you are not concentrating well. other wise the black king will escap to h file.
i did. u mean h8h6 right? it should work too
I visually calculated1.Rh1h5+ gxh5 2.Qg8+ Kf5 3.Rxh5#.
I used to say, "If number of moves to mate is given, it becomes easy to solve the puzzle". So, EASY.
I also selected the incorrect rook for the first move. I think the result was going to be the same.
5 seconds and i solved it
