mate in 1 :
why not Qg7 # ?
You are playing white, and black is going from the 8th rank to the first rank, so the pawn would just take your queen on g7 :)
Yeah, what he said.
Alternative solution 1.Ba7! h2 (1...e2 2.Qg1#) 2.Qg2#
I was thinking the exact same thing except the king can now move (instead of a pawn) 1. Ba7 Kh2 (which slows the mate down by a move since white has to play Bxe3 before mating)
NIce One. Easy. P.S. Its Not Sunday!!!!!!!!
why not Qc8 and then c1? or Qa2 and then b1?
if Qc1 then e1 and if Qxh3 then Kg1 (no mate in 2)
there are many possibilities
There are a lot of options...
That was my first thought! Well done
If black responded: 1. ... h2, it would still be mate in 2, because then...2. Qd1#
yes Ba7 can also be......
nice (alternative with Ba7 is easy to see)
Some thought required.
