tough but figured out lol
i did it but two wrong 1. 2.
Good one indeed.
You have to look and see where you want the king to go.
Here's the actual game:
All hail the Helix!
I think that it is very likely that you looked at the game that you have posted. After the 10th move, black is attacking white's kings pawn with two minor pieces, and white's answer is to defend with his rook. I do not understand this, but the answer is presumably to do with black's king being on the same column (I do not know whether this is a file or a rank). But on the next move black places his bishop onto E7, so the white pawn I would think can be taken, and yet white still does not defend it, but plays his knight to attack the bishop. Can you explain why the black bishop does not just take the pawn? Regards, David
If 11 ...Nxe4 or 11 ...Bxe4 then 12 f3! wins the pawn.
Due to the pin on the king.(It is a file.)
The move 11 ...Be7 blocks the pin on the king and threatens to take the pawn.
NIce and Easy
sac'n'win - what a surprise
Bro, not cool.
way too fast! still fp though
With MeTristan saying right at the end of his post 'white missed the mate but still won', that knocks one of the possibilities that I thought prevented chess.com from finishing a 'mating sequence' out of the window. I thought that if chess.com were playing from a real game, then they were obliged to adhere to the moves that were played. But now I see that this is not the case. Sometimes chess.com end the puzzle at a place that I do not think is finished and sometimes I do not know why and this irritates me.
