always sacrifice the queen ^_^
I have developed a technique for these puzzles.
First I do the most unlikely move. (Usually sacrificing the Queen) Then, usually, when that is deemed correct, I work out the rest of the puzzle.
I liked both puzzles here, but the one from reasonabledoubt more.
Good one ...!!!
a four move wonder

Decent puzzle today, with a pretty theme. Just for fun, another study (white to play and win):
Thanks for the alternative puzzle, ReasonableDoubt....nice riff on the famous Saavedra study.
nice puzzle,move 2 was the teaser,h8 looked good,and i think mate in 4 was possible with that move 2.QxNh8...Kxh8,3.Rh5check...Kg8 4.Bh7,but puzzle line was 2.Qh7... i just got it there is no way B will mate with h8 open if you take Nh8 on second move K can move to h8,with B blocking R,MATE.but if done leaving B on h8,K is trapped on g8,nice puzzle.THANKS FOR INTERESTING PUZZLE,but you have us thinking sac Q so much,i saced Q but on wrong square,you got me,nice puzzle,moving to fast can be dangerous.pretty sneaky
