Crazy Puzzle - Mate in 1! (Nr.17)

If you believe that the last few puzzles have been challenging, then try this one: It is a Mate in 1, but it is very difficult to find the solution!

There is only 1 checkmate!

Ever seen such a puzzle? What do you think of it?

    Very easy, only took me about 45 attempts. And quite frequent thoughts of hitting the solution button.

    @Driv4r: Such a position doesn´t exist in real games, it was created artifically or composed by famous chess puzzle composer "Leonid Kubbel" , the puzzle composers are looking for beautiful solutions for their puzzles, that´s why it is more artificial than a real game!

    It was very difficult indeed, probably had to try more than 20 different options (and some more than once Tongue out) to get it solved but I did it in the end!

    But question about this game, how come that they have so many strong pieces on board, especially white?? I mean it's possible if you get number of pawns promoted but seems unrealistic. Did they play just for fun or sth?

    @Chessnut71: For a mate in one, I think it is quite difficult ;)

    @Liife: I had thought like you did too at first, but it is an invalid move! Note that White´s king is on h3, so he would get into a check himself :) Good luck with your next try

    i saw pawn promotion to d8 as a solid checkmate. but i could be wrong, in fact its more than likely that im wrong. but very cool puzzle. kept me occupied for some time. :D thx!

    Don´t forget the bishop on b1 thnayeem, he can just take it if you play Knight g6 ;) You need another try :)
