Avg. time to solve:
White doesn't have a stronger resistance?
Why does 2.g3 not work?
Why 3. Be3 and not, for example, 3. Re2 (protecting F2, E4 and C2)?
I would put my Queen on h5 threatening f3 , putting white in danger of # or losing pieces ,
Yes, amacivn. Qd3 is also good, forcing the rook back to e1 or else Qf1#. Then, Nf3+
5.Kh1 Nxe1 and there's no stopping the mate at f1.
topazg, I thought 3.Be3 would be good so that the rooks could get connected.
Yeah, that all makes sense. I guess finding those continuations seems like a more interesting way of continuing the puzzle, as opposed to simply capturing a Queen which just feels like White gave up too easily - it's not as if either are going to prolong the inevitable for long
Still, thanks for the responses.
