its not check mate
I don't get it. Why not just play Rxf6 and overpower black?
Play Rxf6, don't cry when the black knight takes your queen. Nice puzzle, last page?
nice opportunity :D
why not 6. rook f8?
The second puzzle:
NOT A MATE IN TWO.
black can check you :)
What about 1. Rxe5
what about Rxf6
Hallo "kings_Landing" : nice puzzles , in your second puzzle after white played kd6 , what if black plays kb6 instead of Bxb1. Is still a mate in 2 possible??
Yes. 2. Bc2# because it is a discovered check, and 2...Bxb1 is prevented.
nice one!! thought abt the discovered check but dint see Bc2 to prevent the bishop taking the rook....this is perfect!! cheers.
Yes, but white can respond to either check with discovered check and mate on move two.
? - Do you mean 1. Rxf6?
This is not solved. What about Kh8?
The puzzle is solved, but to answer your question, if 7...Kh8 then 8. Qxg7#.
