    Place the rook anywhere on the 3rd rank (well except h3) and it's the same thing... kinda stupid the puzzle only works for d3, I'd tried couple of moves on the 3rd rand and then I started looking for other ideas because of that.

    1. Rd3 is quicker though because of the immediate threat of 2. Ng6#.

    1. Rf1 Be4 2. Ke4 and the black K can walk around

    Right - but 1...Be4 you'll have as well with other moves along the 3rd rank (except 1 Rd3 or of course not 1 Rh3)! Wink

    In the worst case you'll have to mate with bishop and knight! Smile

    That takes some thought & if I'd given it some more, I might have solved it on my first attempt !

    1.Rd3 has a double purpose - to clear the f3 square & block the bishop's attack on g6 so that the knight can mate on either of those two squares.

    Moving the rook to any other square allows 1...Be4 & the possibility that the black king is going to escape from it's prison on h4. Sure, Black's position is hopeless here but 1.Rd3 is the only move that gives forced mate in so few moves.

    Very nice puzzle     Cool

    Waste............

             If we bring the knight to ng6 its checkmate.Why do we have to make a whole story of it...................surely waste I suppose.

    Read post #45. There everything is explained! Laughing

    1 Rd3 blocks the bishop (prevents 1...Be4) and threatens 2 Ng6# and 2 Nf3#!

    1...Rf2+ is forced. The end is known ...

    Once more 1 Ng6+? Bxg6! Here White lost his knight for nothing!

    I wonder if the only reason people post 'easy!' after a chess puzzle is because of some insecurity? I fail to see any other reason tbh.

    Nice puzzle.
