8/20/2017 - Attack Before Castling

  • #21

    Unlike Friday I have no idea what could have led to this puzzle starting position.  I don't think I've ever seen so many pieces en prise in one beginning puzzle position.

    I was going for 1.Rxe7+ Kf8 2.Qh6+ Kg8 3.Qg7#. Was too caught up that even didn't notice the knight in e4!

    I saw that first as well, but then looked for something faster.

    Drat, I found the mate in 3 and missed the one in 2, like Samad1

    I tried Re7 but "incorrect".  So I have to have a better study.    I was trying to push the King to g8.   Thanks for the hint #18.  There's the long road and the short road.  Great puzzle.  Thx.

    R:e7+ does the same

  • #34

    Nice.

  • #35

    easy

    1. Nf6+ Kf8 2. Qh6#   these moves,, black king checkmated ;-)

  • #37

    easiest so far

  • #38

    i got it wrong with my forced mate R+e7! kf8 only move Qh6 Kg8 Qg7# its 3 move

    Ditto - that Knight was well hidden.
