    2. Qxb7# 

    That's right. Sorry, I made my post before I saw this.

  • #183

    why not go Knight to f6 and than "Q" to b7?

  • #184

    queen a6 or 7 would have been fine aswell

  • #185

    black made some questionable moves

  • #186

      PS: for those curious about yesterday's mate-in-10 problem, I posted the solution here:

    http://jornalheiros.blogspot.com/2013/05/xadrez-mate-em-10-magnus-carlsen.html

    1 Qh5+ Rg5  2 Qxg5#

    Too easy.

    I know, today it was an easy one. 

    We needed an easy one after that tough mate in ten.  By the way, PCF, what really happened in the Carlsen game after that key move Qc7?

    And, are we getting the puzzles for today, viz. May 17th?

    White Knight: "How YOU Doin'?"

    Black King: "Just fine...how YOU Doin', horsie boy?"

    White Knight: "Doin' GREAT! why doncha come on over here to the Queenside."

    Black King: "Marvelous Idea!!"

    White Queen: "Keep on goin."

    Black King: "Umm. If you say so lady."

    White Bishop: "Oh, and, How YOU Doin' again, my Lord?"

    Black King: "All right now what's this all about?

    White Pawn: "You just got mated, sir."

    Dailypuzzle seems to be on vacation, and the solution to PCFilho's Mate in 3 Puzzle of May 17th (posted at http://jornalheiros.blogspot.in/) is 1.Qg7+; Rxg7 (forced) 2. Rxc8+; Rg8 (forced) 3 R(either 1 of the 2)xg8#

  • #196

    Why doesn't black play bishop takes knight?

  • #197

    cool!

  • #198

    good.
