oh wait now I see the queen...
I know why chess.com didn't post the puzzle. Because I was busy at 9pm CET :D
Hahaa! Yes I notice it too that they have no puzzle for today. What am I gonna do now??? This day then has no purpose for me...
At desperate times like these Tom, I get a little solace from Tactics Trainer.
ha ha ha ! - let the party begin, MSC has entered the forum.
Way too easy!!!
1. Qxh7+ This move is a sacrifice which brings the king to an open file 'h'. The only reply is 'Kxh7.
2. Rh4+ This move retreats the king to the spot. However, he can block with his bishop. The reply is 'Bh6.'
3. Rxh6 Continue to check the king until he goes to the corner or back file. Only answer is 'Kg7'
4. Rh8# Checkmate! White wins by a QUEEN sacrifice
This is a puzzle from the Grandmaster Reti, white can win in six moves! :)
there was a mate in 2 moves. Do you see it? A bit easier.
Am I the only one that has mate in 2?
bishop to h8 then q to g7 would be mate in two.
