1. e4, f5 2. f4, g5 3.Qh5#
Saturday, what's up?
correct me if i am wrong,but does not the classic fools mate take at least four moves,using Q and B to mate oponant?
noo fools mate is 3 step checkmate 2 steps for whit to get checkmated!!
1.f4 e5 2.g4 qh4++
my puzzle starts as regular position of start of any game,so i can not see how people are moving B first without moving a pawn
Хм, скорее всего тут "дурацкий мат" или дурацкие...
I thought this might be some variant of a fool's mate which requires the cooperation of your opponent. But neither the help button nor the solution button provide any information on how to start out, so it is obviously an error in posting of the puzzle. Maybe there will be a correction posted later.
i found line 1,pe4...pf5,2.Bc4...pg5,3.Qh5#,i think that would be mate in three.my puzzle shows up as regular start of game,but even help button does nothing,is that what you have?ANYONE
pg6 blocks QUEEN
i tried 2 solve but 2 no avail...
What was that?
Now this is a Real puzzle ! finally !
I got to admit, it indeed puzzles me for a moment :)
the solution is
1. e4 e5
2. Qh5 Ke7??
mate in 3, there you go :)
