There is no mate, King g9 and the game continues... Sorry
Too much rook
Would have like to see it to the end.
This puzzle is not solved
Here's one from one of my games. I was on the losing end . Mate in 7.
1.Qxd6 Nc6,is right move.puzzle show blunder mistake by black
Yes, I was black. I totally missed Nc6 in the actual game (and the analysis afterward). Must have been a brain lapse or something.
Not too hard, but interesting.
Amazing what Knights can do! That's why I take them off the board.
True, Nxa2 isn't forced, but 2. Kxa2 is mated by 2... Ra7#. Since the puzzler doesn't 'make' white's move... you simply have to respond to the move made.
The smothered mate isn't forced, but it is a forced mate in 2.
thats right it's a force mate nothing u can do about it
