Rather interesting puzzle.
Good one, took only some minutes from me. Guess i'm improving.
Actually, there is mate in 2:
Nope - After 1 R - h6+, 1 ... k x g7 uncovers a rook check on the white king which must be dealt with.
Oh, right! I didn't look it.
Mate in 1:Rh6
The proper way of underpromotion/demotion!
Knoght promotion is the only move that gives check and therefore easy to spot.
We also have:
2. Rh6+ Kg7
3. Qg6+ Kf8
4. Rg8# Kf8 ???? there is a rook on H8 i think Qg6#
I didn't promote to a knight either!
Excuse me Willyswinner, when2. ....kg7, white is being checked by the rook behind the Black king
I didn'it see it, thank you
Blacks king shouldn't move to 3... Kg7
But what's the choice ? 3. ... Ke8 results in 4. Rxg8#
Spent some time on what is not a complicated puzzle because, testing the first move, I promoted (without thinking) to a Queen & got 'Incorrect Move'. Then assumed that wasn't the first move & looked everywhere for an alternative: Dohhhh.....
Anybody else do that ?
winning on time....ethical. ..??
