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!
Different. This one is rather odd.
loved this puzzle was epic
The provided solution is quit bad, the best solution is QXh6+ and next move is checkmate.
Good day ; bonne journée.
Throw... the... CHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEZZZZZZ!
3...Ne4+ is better
What's wrong with 1.Qxh6+ g7:h6 2. B:f6X
Wow. A real toughie today.
Yep. White calculates a win down the road. Black has two responses worth considering, but both continuations calculate out to a win for white.One continuation:4. ... Nf1+5. Kf2 Nxe36. Ng6+ Kh77. Bxd8 Kxg69. Kxe3 1-0
Another continuation:4. ... Kh75. Qe6 Many variations from here, but the threat of Qg8# keeps the black rook on the 8th rank except to check, and white answers Nf1+ with Kf2.5. ... gxf66. Qf7+ Kh87. Ng6#4
5. ... Re76. Qf7 1-0
whats up with that
this was quite good!
I am quite fond of Gouda.
like every smart person!
