1 Bxa8 Qxb2 checkmate
white has to act fast, or he is dead. nice puzzle and pretty easy
i like this puzzle
Everything is really clear here )))
it's just puzzle...
Crafty Bishop !!
Listen to :( if you want)
Why wouldn't the black king or rook take the white bishop?
King is under check from the white rook, even if he takes the bishop the result is the same
Not often I say the puzzle was easy, it must have been because I'm not getting better !
Very nice puzzle, its not as obvious, but black's position is just as threatening as white's. Who ever had to move first would win.
I did this exact mate in a bullet game a while back!
thanks for reminding me - it`s sunday...
easy but fun!
