Please be relevant, helpful & nice!
ok what is wrong with 4.Ra1#?
Seriously, Lloyd, what is wrong with spending 2 seconds to look at that for yourself? With your rating and experience in posting, surely wouldn't take as long as it took you to write the post....
I tried RA1 AS well
Actually 4. Ra1 # is an equally acceptable solution
Actually I meant to write Ra1+...# (Shortcut for:4. Ra1+ Qa5 / 5.Rxa5 bxa5 / 6Qa6#My keyboard for some reason must have skipped those dots and the "+" Anyway, my bad. Corrected.
nice 4th move with the queen
Equally as good with the rook. Don't you think ?
Black Queen can block the Rook.
Sh1t, did'nt see that. Thanks.
Nice puzzle, but a little too simple.
Classic.Please be relevant, helpful & nice!
4. Ra1 leads to Black playing Qa5
5. Rxa5 bxa5
