Right moves for the solution to the medium chess puzzle 0085
Based on the objective of the puzzle, you have to make the right moves. Following are the right moves
- Qxh7+, Bxh7#
Explanation for the moves
- Qxh7+ - Your queen sacrifices itself to attract the opponent’s queen to h7.
- Qxh7 - Opponent’s queen captures your queen. This is a zugzwang move as this forces opponent’s queen to respond and this is the only legal move available.
- Bxh7# - Your bishop from the battery formation captures opponent’s queen and checkmate. King has no free squares to move as it is blocked by rook. Opponent’s king can’t capture your bishop since it is supported by knight. This is called Blackburne’s mate.. This is how you can mate in 2 moves.
- For right move - You utilised the power of the battery formation. This helped you have a checkmate in 2 moves
- For wrong move - You could have sacrificed your queen for mate in 2 moves. You missed it
