Why not Bf7 followed by Qg6? It Leads to Mate in 2..
1. ... Re1+ prevents 2.Qg6#
1. Bxf7 Re1+2.Rxe1 Qxf7,3.Qxf7+ Kxf7
and white has the advantage, but no quick win ... and it certainly wasn't a mate in 2.
There are several variations, but they all seem to result in an advantage for white, but no quick win.
Hey thanks,didn't see that at first.
I was once on the receiving end of a game that ended very much like this.
i did it
Unlikely to happen,but it was a good puzzle.
1. Bxf7 Rxf7
But what r doesn't xf7 but puts White into check???
You puzzle counts you wrong for finding a quicker mate. Both 3. Qxg6# and 3. Qf4# are faster mates than the solution given in the puzzle.
Can we design a game that a computer cannot play well?
