Practical and a little bit tricky - good puzzle
Are we sure the pawns are going th eright way? what if they were to be going the other way?
This puzzle is all about precision.
Just repeat the puzzle title, that way people will think I said something insightful.
Have you been talking to your inner Soul again or, just sampling the Highland malt ?
Highland Malt is hard to find where I live. Here in Florida, the best substitute I have found is fermented orange juice. Just the other day, after taking a draught, I entered an altered state of consciousness and I was able to channel the ghost of Bobby Fischer.
At first he said I was a pretty good chess player but then he started ranting about the American income tax system and then he said something about Spasky being a no-good cheater. Then he started going all conspiracy theory on me. He said he has proof that Kasparov is the offspring of a union between Bigfoot and a grizzly bear (I didn't quite understand that one).
Even stone cold dead, that guy is still crazy. I guess I should take that bit about being a good chess player with a grain of salt.
Yes the ranks are labeled black pawns promote at rank 1 white pawns promote at rank 8
Bed time here Thutmoselll. I'll have to sleep on that one !
3. Ra7 leads to checkmate on 4. Why not?

So that's how you use a rook to rid the two passing pawns, thanks!
Thars more than ones way to skin that position
For move 2, why didn't king just go back to h3?
