It has been prety busy several months, but I am hoping to have time to do one of my favorite thing - creating new puzzles or finding some older cool ones, my students haven't seen before.

Here is one - enjoy! No solution given, so you can give it a few tries, without being tempted to see the answer. Contact me

    @F22Raptor: after gxf8=Q, the king can move to g6 and the pawn can move to f7 or f6.

    @debolanks 1... fxg6 and the king escapes

     

    @person with the right answer

     please delete it. The author asked to keep the right answer to yourselves if you get it (I even removed part of my previous post where I said that my gut says 1. XX is the correct first move, because it turned out that my gut was right.)

    gormat: "Bf6 regardless of next move Rh8#"

    No, this will draw.

    1.) Bf6...fxg 2.) Rh8+... Kf7 (then the rook trade will happen if white wants to maintain a material lead and B vs P is a draw)

    And if g7 the rook moves along the file and since white's rook can't get to the backrank and the pawn and bishop are trapped it is a draw...

    @MasterMan he doesn't have to take the rook...?

    Hint: 1. g7 has the right idea in mind. Try to understand what causes it to not work.
