online chess puzzle #5572
White to move, mate in 2
I forgot to click "analyse" and made the key move as my first guess. Much easier than its rating suggests. Nice puzzle though.
yah its pretty easy 'cause i've done other related puzzle... but neat puzzle, anyways
not at all
it was hard
Fairly easy puzzle as you cannot allow the King to escape to e6, which makes Qg4 quite obvious. Nevertheless a pretyy puzzle from my home country.
I remember it was very difficult to find a key move that made the 4 mate variations possible.
So I agree the solution is not difficult for chess player used to play endgames as you only will have to "contain" the black king on d5.
The mate variations are fairly difficult, my favorite one is 1.Qg4-bxc6 2.Qg8#
Keep it up Frank and yes indeed that Qg8 mate is very pretty.
