Didn't we kind of cover this yesterday?
And 3...Be8 is not addressed either. F7 is now dbl protected, and black in intending Rd7 and recapture knight.
Mate in two
Dang. I thought there was another solution Kb7 then what I thought was no matter what black did next move would be Qa6# but he can slow it down one move by pushing his pawn forward so it actually isn't mate in 2 my way. Anyway. . . Nice puzzle!
i think its cool except that after Re1 it seems black gets the piece right back...
White will defend the knight by moving his rook to F7.
You've prevented the easiest way for the Rook to get the Knight. White would answer with
if you want to continue your mission with 4..Rd7, then 5. c5
and now you either take the pawn and hang your Knight, or take the Knight and fork your King.
also, congrats to all the people who ran the 2012 Shamrock Shuffle (including me) in Chicago today!!
A very interesting lesson. Thanks for the lesson.
You mean Re8. But not if white protects it with Rxf7.
If white continued play, he can ensure to have the piece advantage:
Re8 2. Bxe5 xe5 3. Rxf7 defending the knight
or if black decides to take the knight, white can still retreat the bishop and have the advantage.
MDOC777- you need to get rid of black's knight first. :)
Surely u should take the black queen first.
And lose your now-hanging knight? Well, if you must.
you can find the answers in the source of the page
