i really enjoy your blog. this puzzle does not appear very difficult. i have not yet solved the last tactical one. will you please post the answer.
Hi,The answer is in between the two brackets to the right of the puzzle. You'll need a mouse to highlight between the brackets to see it.Here is the answer:1.f6! gxf6 2.Kxg2! Kg5 3.a4 bxa3 4.bxa3 Kf5 5.a4 Ke5 6.d6! cxd6 7.c6! dxc6 8.a5+-It seems simple but there are several tricks to it. For example,1.a4? is a mistake, as black plays 1...Kg3! and mates white!Goood Luck!
Hi Anonymous,I think I misenterpreted your message and you meant the solution to the tactical puzzle presented on Jan 31st, 2007.The first move to the solution is 1. c4!I will post the entire solution tonight.Regards,Mark
