[Date "????.??.??"][Result "*"][FEN "rnb1kr2/pp1p1pQp/6q1/4PpB1/1P6/8/1PP2PPP/2KR3R w - - 0 1"]1.e6 Nc6 2.exd7+ Bxd7 3.Rhe1+ Be6 ( 3...Qe6 4.Rxe6+ Bxe6 5.Bh6 Ke7 6.Qg5+ f6 7.Qg7+ Bf7 8.Re1+ Ne5 9.f4 ) 4.Rxe6+ Ne7 ( 4...fxe6 5.Qd7# ) 5.Rxe7# *
You missed two better moves for black in your nine move line. Instead of 7...Bf7 black should play 7...Rf7. Instead of 8...Ne5 black should play 8...Kd7 (even 8...Kd6 is better than 8...Ne5). You also missed a better move for white in that line with 7. Bxf8+.
More importantly though, on 3...Be6 4. Rxe6+ you happened to miss the other of black's three legal responses, 4...Qxe6, and black should be winning, and is definitely not getting checkmated next move.
You need to look at all possible moves in tight situations such as these. Thank you for the response.
If he'd have took the pawn with the knight black would have prevented this.
1. e6 Qxg7 2. ed+ Nxd7 3. Re1+ Qe5 4. Rxe5+ Nxe5 5. Rd8#.
bogus. what the f bishop is doing? it could guard the king. why using queen??
I DONT LIKE UR LANGUAGE
f could stand for foolish may be , some time when the correct move is not done well you feel really something related what I can really say people her feel these games like a real battle and fight and that what I like with chess players they are great like kings , I can say that those who miss to play chess they have missed a very interesting parts of their life ,there is a brilliant thing is happening here ,thanks for the chess community thanks for all of you .
I guess it's "easy" if you play e6 (either pure guess or because it looks a good first move) and black answers with Qxg7 - then you follow the obvious path to the answer. But I wouldn't say it's easy if you have to work it out from beginning to end. 1.. Qxg7 isn't forced, so what do you do then?
Yes. 1. e6 is winning, but I wouldn't call it easy.
Thanks.Seems you're right.
