i'm going to start making them progressively harder as the week goes on. Sunday will be simple simple, Saturday will be GM level :)
it's just that we have gotten feedback that they are too hard as well. this site has a big mix of skills on it.
this one was relativley easy, though I always have trouble on the first move!
so many different combinations!
" I always have trouble on the first move!"
Generally, look for the most "forcing" response.
I thought I was the other side again!
Puzzles are hard to solve when you can't move the pieces. I got it when I found out I was playing for black, though.
this may be a dumb? but is there a reason that white has to take the rook on d1.. i mean its pretty obvious that a fork will follow .. meaning that by taking the rook white is trading his queen for a rook and therefore a bad move
It is forced.
