    @ndskykng- The decoy example on wikipedia confirms what you said, that it's the decoyed piece that's threatened. So in the puzzle it is a deflection.

    Easy!

  • #143

    good puzzle

    No.  See post #58

    1. Qa3 works too.

    But not in three moves.

      Couldn't understand the logic, but got it anyway !!!!!

    tricky

         Puedes hacer un ejercicio a ciegas,

     es decir viendo   inmagináriamente la   posición:   Blancas Re1, Ta1, Th1, Ac2, Ac3, peones h4, g4, g2  Negras: Rg8, Ad5, Cd6, b7, c6, h6, g7, g6. Estan valido los enroques y los peones al paso.

    great puzzle. missed first move though

  • #156

    I disagree fellas... ?????????////

  • #157

    interesting

    Checkmate was inevitable. I would have taken the queen and hoped the other guy/gal made a blunder...ha ha. Actually, now that I look at it again, by taking the queen on the first move, it would have set up a defence for when the pawn promoted. Game would have continued....

    Yeah.  For one move.  Pawn promote, checkmate.

    What's your point?
