Knocking out a 1700 player with a sharp tactic

  • #1

    Hello everyone,

    I'd like to share a puzzle that is based on my last game with a 1700 rated player.

    In this puzzle, your goal is to find 3 devastating moves that force the opponent's immediate resignation. Don't look for a mate in 3, just find a sequence of 3 moves that give White a huge advantage and force Black's resignation.

    Can you find the tactic?

    I hope you like it.

    See you soon,

    finding that tactic. I'm adept with tactics, but i rarely find them in the actual games...

    Thank you happy.png

    Keep practicing. The more tactics you solve, the easier it is to find them in the actual games. It comes with the territory.

    Kh7 seems to stop the mate

    Oh no, is this another low rated player puzzle?

    Maybe the "solution" is Qg4 Rgd8 Qxg7#

    What's this, no, it's an actual puzzle!

    Good job.

    First move doesn't seem to be a sacrifice since you're exchanging the bishop with a knight. But it removes the pawn from the d-file and creates a discovered check ...

    Nice, well done!

    rh3 then.. g4... g5... I do not see any defense to that, not saying your way was bad  or anything like that, I just like checkmates

    My opponent was in the 1700's, just like you, and I crushed him. Don't underestimate my skills. I will become a 1700's player myself very soon.

    Black probably should have played  ... f5 (or anyway not have taken on e4) but white is winning.
