Hmm, my first thought too. But after Qg2, Qb1+, forces Qg1, followed by Qe4+ capturesthe  rook, if the queen goes to g2 to stop,  you can just take the queen followed by Nf4+ forking rook and king

hello

After black's check on Nf1+, ..... white will be ahead on one pawn (a passed one). White has one bishop and black has one knight. White is winning. :)

Yes.  Thank you.  Rather simple isn't it.

I started to look at 3...Qb1+ but didn't follow through.  This again demonstrates my weakness in calculation.

" Hold on just a sec, but what if black plays nf1 next move."

Yeah, all I see is black knight forks king and queen, king moves, knight takes queen, king can take knight and loose bishop or save the bishop. Then it's black rook and knight against white bishop and knight. Or, if king takes black knight, pawn takes white bishop, and it's now black rook against white knight. Black comes out on top in both. Can anyone explain a way this WOULDN'T happen?

mohsen_chess2012  (comments #'s 55 - 61).... have you decided what you want to say ?  ( كنت قد قررت ما كنت أريد أن أقول )

• #55

Very good

• #56

Done.

• #57

not a good solution, on next move white queen is in danger.

• #58

Could someone enlighten me, I dont understand why black queen would take in f6?

That was different...

But the idea is simple: the 1st move threatens checkmate next. Black then finds a tricky way to avoid it, by sacrificing his Queen.

PS: for those interested in the continuation, it would be:

4. ... Nf1+ 5. Kf3 Nxe3 6. Ng6+ Kg8 7. Bxd8,

and White is winning in the endgame.

This is an idiotic continuation. Why wouldn't he take out the bishop with his pawn and cover the h-pawn with his king. Giving up his horse to take out the queen isn't absolutely necessary i think.

Excellent calculation knowing the queen check is coming. Page four Saturday. For you Liza!
