What's going on ?
I can't see anything !
Not bad, but I think it have various solutions... 1.Qf3 gxf5, 2.Qxf5+ Kg7, 3.Bxe5+ Nf6, 4.Qg5#
Why not 1. Bxe5+?
yup .. it's a deflection problem
After 1. Qf3, being that it's not a check, 1...Bxb4+ followed by 2...Qxc7 should last more than four moves for black.
Cute solution, but in a real game one would certainly see 1. Bxe5 first, don't you think?
1. Bxe5 Kxe5 2. Qd4+ Kf4 3. g3+ Kg4 (3. ... Kf3 4. Qe3+ Kg4 5. h3+ Kh5 6. Be2++) 4. h3+ Kg5 (4. ... Kf3 4. Qe3++) (4. ... Kh5 5. Be2+ Kg5 6. h4++) 5. h4+ Kh5 or Kg4 6. Be2++
and, of course, 1. ... Kg5 is met with 2. h4+ Kh5 or Kg4 3. Be2++
nice, i like it
Why sacrafice the Qeen?
Nice & easy
black can take the knight with the rook on the second move and the bishop can't move...
Wow, not easy to see!
Nice one.... i like the hidden move of bishop
nica and cool
I prefer this variation. (Please don't criticise me)
This doesn't work. Black moves to Ke6 on first check.
I said please DON'T criticise me!
Consider it constructive criticism. It will help you improve your game.
