Sometimes the most obvious answer is the right one. Hence this puzzle
there are 2 solutions to this puzzle... if i move Rd8, the king cannot move and black cannot get any support for his king... the next move Re8 will check mate...
After you move Re8+,...Kd6 or Kd7,to spoil mate in two,you need pawn on e5 to protect Rd6#,that's the only way I can see to mate in two,nice try though!!!
Easy one :P
Easy ! Done !
Trapped in a mating net.
Good day; bonne journée.
What stops Kd6 after your Re8 ???
Nice puzzle.Every move played perfect,especially the last three to get the mate,Thank's and well done
