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 !
Queen sacrifice !!
Nice one! At first glance 1 Qxe6+ looks like a stupid move!
SACRIFICE MORE!!!! nice and impressive
I have solved this puzzle.
Rule #1 Sac your queen as fast as you can.
How to slove chess.com puzzles
Step 1: What is the dumbest looking queen sac on the board?
Step 2: What are the rest of the moves?
I agree w/ that 1. would have been hard if you don't know that it's a mate in 2.
I try not to look at the mate in 2 and stuff like that so it's harder
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!
