This puzzle might have been more interesting and/or difficult if it included a few more moves prior to the starting position, maybe it could be used again going back a few moves.
it was an easy one
too easy : )
awesome. taking the knight with the pawn still makes it mate in 2.
you are correct,2,Qh5,ithought that black would take pawn,but i guess he knew it was over,good read
White's pieces are clustered menacingly around black's king but if black's king moves it would be a check! so enjoy this puzzle this is mate in 2
Saumilnair, that really is a superb puzzle. I was way off! What is particularly impressive is that black has a number of moves on offer, including two checks, and blacks rook can cover every single on of them. Thanks for sharing!
Easy one this!
it was too simple for me, i wasnt moving the night becuase i assumed the pc move would be taking the knight with the pawn..
even if pawn captures N 2.Qh5 is mate,i think black knew it was over,probably resigned,but it came from real game so that must have been the outcome,i thought pawn would take N,but seen it did not matter,good read though.
