good one indeed.
why couldn't black take rook with pawn?
nice mate this one was slightly challenging
keep up the hard puzzles!
Got it 1st
works only if black takes back with the king and not the pawn which would be the better move.
This is pretty good!
first page, close look reveals only way
got it also in 1 try.
a pity that the 4-move machine line was chosen over the critical line after 1...gxh6.
didn't get it first pop, got it second pop.. nice puzzle
The pawn mate
3 ... Kg6 4 f5#
would have been much more aesthetically pleasing.
What happens if rook takes h6 and then pawn takes rook? Don't the chances look better for black?
Would wouldn't black take the rook with the pawn instead?
I'm still learning by trial and errors...lots of errors. This was good for seeing through the play to the end result!
Nice puzzle but first page.
