OK, here’s another guess…
@amdt You got it! After this sequence Black's back row is protected by the two rooks so White doesn't have the power to attack.
Here’s my guess…
1) Take the White Queen with the Black Queen: after this move, there is no escape for Black and White will definitely mate (by sending their Rooks to Black's back row)
2) Have the Black King escape to H8: after this move, there is a sequence of moves that allows Black to escape. Can you find this sequence?
(I'll post the/a solution tomorrow)
Here's a puzzle from the book I'm working my way through, "Bobby Fischer Teaches Chess". White just moved their Queen to F7. The only way for Black to escape a mate is to move their King away to H8 (trust me on this). Can you find the combination of moves that'd accomplish this?

Do we really, really, _really_, **really** need so much complexity just to render a list that comes from a database on the server side? React, redux, sagas, yikes... #theVent
I'm half-way through this book and it's blowing my mind every couple of pages with the brilliance of the chess.
There's something magical about its aesthetic, too — cheap paper, cheap blurry printing, extremely lo-fi layout/typography, and yes: it's printed with flipped pages, so you read right-hand pages only, reach the end of the book, flip it over, and then read the second half.
Hey I'm going to be doing my first ever "live" set next month.
It's virtual and proceeds go to the National Suicide Hotline.
Unfortunately I need (want?) about $300USD worth of gear to perform the way I want to.
I'm not asking you for money because there are lots of people who deserve it way more than I do.
But my music is free and #CreativeCommons so if you could share it with people you think would enjoy it, and I get more downloads, it justifies me spending the $300USD+.
