    good work with the knight who should of been taken with the bishop instead of coming out with the king?

    Lousy

    Once you notice that the Queen and Bishop are coordinated to attack the King it is easier to find the clearance sacrifice of the Knight...Black rejects the sac to stay alive and all the other moves fall into place.

    Of course not: 1 Nd6+ Bxd6? (or 1...Qxd6?) 2 Qxb7# Wink

    What am I missing?  Why not Nd6+ followed by Qxb7?

    1 Nd6+ Kc7 If now 2 Qb7+ Black can play 2...Kxd6 and a mate in 5 is impossible (at best defence)! Surprised

    B3# that stupid ************* pawn wow that had to be imbarresing

    Actually, this is mate in two very simply. INFOWARS.COM

    why dosen't the bishop kill the horse?

  • #120

    Move 2. Qxb7+ looks very tempting...

    1. Nd6+ Kc7 (either capture leads to Qxb7#) 2. Qxb7+ Kxd6 (Forced) 3. Qd5+ Kc7 (Forced) 4. Bf4+ Ne5! (This was the move I missed. It sacs the knight, but after the bishop recapture, the rook can block check and give a flight square for the king) 

    3. Bf4+? fails to Ke6! After 4. Qd5+ Kf6 5. Be5+? (trying to press the attack) Nxe5 there is no continuation.
