3/6/2013 - Out of the Box Mate in 2

  • #101

    Easy when you know it's mate in two, there's nothing else you can do. But I wouldn't have solved it without this information.

    Nice one !

    Step 1: What is the dumbest looking queen sac on the board?

    Step 2: What are the rest of the moves?

    nice one

    I agree w/ that 1.  would have been hard if you don't know that it's a mate in 2.

  • #113

    I try not to look at the mate in 2 and stuff like that so it's harder

  • #114

    nice 1

  • #115

    rather than "puzzle of the day", they might want to call this "queen sacrifice of the day".

    have a great  day!

    I only got the first move because I was looking for a queen sac.

    realy that easy

    Moral of the story: when the King's running space is limited (in this case non-existant), look for a killer blow!

    I knew it was a queen sac, what else!
