Ack, another phantom bishop from no where.
Took me a while to see him also. Board vision... I need better glasses
Almost took queen on instinct, glad I took a second to find mate
Why so much time to solve it? That seems completely inconsistent with other problems of the same level, yet there are nearly 3000 showings of that problem..?
I've learned to look and see if the King is in a box. And in this problem he is, so I looked for the check to put him away and found it. 100%
I don't see How this puzzle would take 7min.
why the heck 800+ sec for a 2 move problem ?
I agree rb1957. Why on earth for 800+ seconds?
Someone must have left their TT window open for 3 days
How. Could. I. Miss. THAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
down to 5 mins now...
Qf7 is mate in 3
no . black can play N in c6 t0 e7 and black king can escape
