5th!

Finally realised that those who type 'first' seriously *cannot* have completed the puzzle first :-)

 

At least that answers that question!

thePIguy

oh 4th and 5th!!

there are multiple solutions, some of the moves are not forced

Are the people that post "first!" 8 years old or just really immature?

This puzzle was awesome.  I couldn't find some of the queen moves though. :\

It doesn't matter what black does on that move.  Either way he gets checkmated the next turn.

Can someone explain why you wouldn't have 7. Qxa1?

RiptideRider

I don't get the queen play at the end.  Why were there two moves there instead of one?

 It would make a stalemate

I just saw that two seconds after hitting post.  Thanks for the reply!

I don`t get it. What`s the point of moving those queens around that long?

why didn't the king take the pawn on b6 to begin with?


Because white is going to promote first.  In the real game the reason white can't immediately capture black's queen after promoting is because that will make it a stalemate.

If black takes the pawn on b6 white be be able to just capture black's queen and win easily.
