[Quote from: "LiamM"]
[Quote from: "mrmip"]Ok, the white Lady steps up the stair case: 1.Qc3 2.Qd3 3.Qd4 4.Qe4 5.Qe5 6.Qf5 7.Qf6 8.Qg6 9.Qg7 !0.Qh7 11.Qh8 ... always checking on the white square and pinning on the black square, thus forcing the black's move. And now she does not notice that next step is missing and falls all the way down 12.Qh1# 😊



Perhaps I'm missing something obvious (wouldn't be the first time) but surely Pb8=Q wins for black after Qh1?

Simple things are at times unbelievably out of reach for common players(minds) in chess !!And that, perhaps,is the ever lasting novelty of the game.

This is one of those puzzles that make you slap yourself upside the head, because after you see the solution you realize that it really wasn't that hard once you see the goals that White needs to succeed. I have seen this puzzle before, but to be honest I still screwed it up! 😊
