    chess.com y u no give harder puzzles!?

    Always wondered why myself.. since most other chess sites offer much tougher ones or at least give you a choice of easy or hard. I guess it could be either...

     

    1- Because a lot of beginners say 'nice' or 'great puzzle' to them (even to mate in one puzzles) Tongue out.

    2- The puzzle staff are low ranked players who are wowed by queen sacrifices or dont appreciate tougher challenges or more subtle moves.

    3- To ensure you dont waste your time at work by thinking too hard, puzzles are designed to be as obvious as possible and 'solved' in 3 secs.

    Black bishop was overloaded - covering the diagonal (especially h8) AND providing an escape square at g8 for his king.  The initial Rh8+ deflected the bishop from his second function.
