familiar but nice......
Good practice, I enjoyed it, thanx for sharing...
Good one. Just as I like it .
Hard to believe that Black hasn't developed his Bishop/Queen this far into the game.
it was nice!
Mate in two (1. Nc3 Nxg1?, 2. Nd3#)
White will win, but mate in two is foiled by 1. ... dxc3.I don't see any way for white to checkmate on the next move.I see 1. Nc3 dxc3, 2. Rc5+ Rxc5, 3. Qxc5#
EDIT: In fact, Jakester's alternate solution (1.Nc5) DOES seem to force a mate in 2.
1. ... Nxg1, 2. Ncd3#1. ... Rxc5. 2. Rxc5#1. ... Bf5, 2. Qg7#1. ... f3, 2. Ncd3%
i did it in 4 moves easy
No mistakes from me.Please be relevant, helpful & nice!
easy, common concept.
quite easy but good
This is not a puzzle. All the first moves are forced to keep the king in check!
