  • #61

    too easy =)

  • #62

    Nice job entombing the King.

  • #63

    I didn't see that the knight was going to capture the queen

    Still, I got it without a mistake

  • #64

    Nice puzzle.

  • #65

    white position is so much better, i don't want to sac my queen, i want to enjoy it for few more moves!!!

  • #66

    Challenging??? Hahahaaa...nice mate, but not very challenging...4 secs!

  • #67

    I was thinking about Rxd5. But then Bd6, it becomes mate in 3.

    Oh, and I also don't care if you found it easy. So did 50% of the commentors. Let's try saying something worthwile once in a while.

    Cool

  • #70

    Surprised

  • #71

    why wouldn't either Rxd5 or exd5 followed by Q-c7# work? Queen sac looks prettier I guess.

    Yeah, no kidding. How hard do you expect a realistic puzzle to be if it's mate in 2 or mate in 3? It makes you look like a complete tool if you feel the need to say it's easy.

  • #74

    Easy one.

  • #75

    Ouch, delta quad's puzzle was difficult.

     

    Nice one

  • #76

    didn't like that one as much

  • #77

    Easy!

  • #78

    taxing.........

  • #79

    easy one

  • #80

    I think they labeled this as being difficult because Nabokov considered placing this puzzle in his book. Otherwise, it wouldn't make much sense, their comment, that is...
