5/21/2012 - Two Threats in One Move

  • #141

    This is by far the worst puzzle yet. It's not forced mate, in fact if I was playing white I would win this game.

    Qf4
    g3 Qxg3
    Qxf8+ Kh7
    Rc2 Bd4
    Rg2

     

    crisis averted, and a 6 point advantage to white.

    way to EASY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    yes there are other moves but not with what is given it's black turn to start white already did the damage.  sorry white but you made your bed now you get to sleep in it.  Thats the way the game is played!  God bless you all!

    Why not,

    1. Qf4

    2. Qxe5

    therefore, no checkmate and white rook will not be eaten.

    Could white move pawn to g2 after queen to f4? Black could decide between taking the pawn or taking the rook. If black takes the rook, white queen can take black rook and give check and after that move queen up to a defencive position near the king. If black takes the pawn, white can move his rook to c2 and has pervented mate.

    why would the white queen go a3? why not N f3?

    what's the matter?

  • #153

    maybe 3 threats would be better

  • #154

    Forget about the king and just save the rook.

     

    There are so many moves that can postpone the checkmate.
