This is very hard!
that was fun
i thought it would be checkmate
so why cant black play 2 hxg6
That was awesome. Got most of it first try. What foresight!
What does first and first page mean??
Q x Q
not the first, but the worst
What would had been this way ? : 1. Rxe6+ Kd8 2. Qxf6+ Kc,
excellent ! realy maza aa gaya
@Therell- If it was taken from a real game, it makes sense that it would end when black resigned. It would be a bit of a misrepresentation if it kept going.
Agreed. The puzzle wouldn't accurately reflect the real life game if it kept going to checkmate. Also explains why black may have missed a move or two in the puzzle, especially his blunder on move 6, taking the queen instead of dealing with the very real threat of White's b-pawn. It's a real life game with occasional Black errors, and not the "always the best move for black" puzzles we usually see. Great Saturday puzz!
Yeah. I got it with a few missteps, but it's tempting to just pick up the black queen, even with that nasty threat to white by the black bishop/rook combo. It seems that black queen taking white queen was just too tempting; definitely a blunder, but a hard one to see when you're under the gun. White pawn was definitely an overlooked threat. Fantastc puzzle today.
I did not solve this one that fast.Great puzzle
