did you like my last 2?
Here is a game I just played. The tactics are near the end with a very aesthetic checkmate. Use them if you want to.
Screener, that second one is a one-mover. 1. Bf7#.
This game has a forced mate in six (according to computer analysis) beginning on the 18th move. Use it if you want to.
This is probably my best puzzle yet. Black to move and win material in 4 moves.
in the last puzzle rook h5
Moving the rook to h5 would take 2 moves and it is useless. Maybe you notating wrong? Perhaps you should learn how to notate before correcting others' puzzles.
Mate in 5
Not a forced mate as Black doesn't have to promote the pawn.
here's another one.
White could've played Bf7#
I played this game against a computer on my phone. I liked the checkmate.
The checkmate at the end is pretty cool, too bad I didn't get to play it out
21. Nh5+ or Ne8+ Kg8 22. Qg7# and 20...Kg7 was a blunder. Best move was Kh8. Then 21. Nd7+ Kg8 22. Nxf8 Kxf8
Why not Rxh5? Seems like mate ...
If white plays Nh5+ Black can't play Rxh5 because he's still in check by the queen. If you are double checked you have to move the king.
Mate in 7. Difficulty: Medium
