Second edition of the puzzles I gave last few days, this are the continuation. Hope you enjoy the 2 puzzles and I wish you can solve it. So, sit back, relax and enjoy your solving problems thanks.
Nice puzzles. Especially the second interference,decoy and smothered mate
Sure indeed. You are really a great player, you play chess with plans and strategies. :)
Absolutely. The smother cannot occur with the black queen on g8. The interference of the knight forces the rook to come to the back rank, and then the tactic works. Excellent puzzle. I would equate this puzzle with art. Great job nyLsel.
Thank you! Did you understand the real motif why Nd8!! is praise as a brilliant move?
Excellent smothered mate. Nice job.
Thanks mark :))
your welcome Calbaman, I hope I can post more.. :)
Nice job! Good smother on the second puzzle.
Feel free from posting your opinions and suggestions. thanks!
