Right moves for the solution to the medium chess puzzle 0073
Based on the objective of the puzzle, you have to make the right moves. Following are the right moves
- Rd8+, Qxc2
Explanation for the moves
- Qc2 - Since the opponent’s queen and rook are in a battery formation, opponent’s queen forks your unguarded queen and rook. This is a mistake
- Rd8+ - If you deflect the opponent’s rook from c file, you can capture the opponent’s queen without any loss. You rook sacrifices itself to deflect the opponent’s rook
- Rxd8 - Opponent’s rook is forced to capture your rook since this is the only move available for them to avoid the back-rank mate. This is a zugzwang move.
- Qxc2 - Since the opponent’s rook moved from c file, your queen captures the opponent’s queen without any loss. This is how you can gain the queen in two moves.
- For right move - You have forced the opponent’s rook to move from c file to gain the queen. It was a wise decision
- For wrong move - You could have gained the opponent’s queen by giving a check from your rook. Try again
