4/27/2012 - Mate in 3

  • #121

    Nice, but in a real game with a short time limit I would definitely do Nxf4 first and then Qd5, as someone already mentioned. It's just as much of a guaranteed mate, but far less damaging if you after starting the sequence you realize you overlooked something - which can easily happen in a blitz game.

    The knight sac everyone is talking about doesnt work, because it does force black to take the knight. THe king simply moves to h4

    Rg4, mate in 2, in that case. Black must take the knight.

    That explains why I didn't see the first move...it wasn't a check. Frown

    Brilliant queen sacrifice! How did black's king end up in the center? Still, unpreventable

    Another possible solution
    1.Nxf4+ exN [.. Kh4 2. Nxg6+ Kh5 [..Kh3 3.Qg4+ Kxh2 4. Qg2#] 3. Qf5#]
    2.Qd5+ Kh4 [.. g5 3.Qxg5#]
    3. Qg5+ Kh3
    4. Qg3#

    More complex, but works.

    4. Qg3+ fxQ

    It's no form to black be free from that mate if black don't take the Queen?
