you wouldnt promote cuz it check mate next
a little to easy
G4 was obvious. At first, I hunted for something else. Then I hunted for something after that first move where I thought the crux of the puzzle lied.
Nope. G4 WAS the puzzle.
this is crap i dont get it??? y cant we just do d8 and promote a queen
Well that was surprisingly easy
u may think it's best 2 promote 2 queen, but then it's Rh1#
Didn,t see it.
very easy one!
why would you not promote to queen??
Rook can mate in one, afterwards. ... Rh1#
move the pawn or DIE, MEOW TO ALL!!!
hem ... where is the question in fact ? Far too easy
actually that move is illegal.
And the point? Why not promote?
That's why white did f4. If black did Rhi+, then king to f3. Safe.
