Daswimbush - queen would checkmate D6!
invite me to a short live game then :)
I'm at work, can't focus. I'm kinda posting here between patients.
haha fair enough! another time maybe
...easy, but I liked
First we ask -- what if Black had moved 1. ... Kf8 -- UhOh,1. ... Kf8, 2. Qd6#
So...After 2. Rxg71! black has several options, but no good ones.
2. ... Kxg7, 3. Qh6+ Kh8, 4. Qxh7# 2. ... Nxf4, 3. Rxh7# 2. ... Nxg7, 3. Qh6 any move, 4. Qh7# or, as in today's puzzle, 2. ... Ng5, 3. Qxg5 any move, 4. Rxh7#
EDIT: As ndskyking pointed out, by the time I actually submitted this,I had already figured out what happened if 1. ... Kf8, so the note below should have been deleted.
Now I want to look at the lines that would follow had black moved 1. ... Kf8.
I don't think I'm reading the post correctly duff. It says you want to see lines that follow had black moved 1...Kf8, but you already posted the answer to that, 2. Qd6#
I think you meant something else?
Too hasty - played Nh6 like some others. I expected the queen to play a larger part in this one but at least she doesn't get sacrificed-makes a change. Black deserves to be mated just for getting in that state !
Another easy one, but OK...
I know ninja stuff
