    I saw a puzzle like this once. It was in a book with witty chess. It said mate in two. But perhaps it should be 2½.

    The position just before 'this one' (a blank board) was White king on e1 and white rook on a1. none of them had moved. Black king on b3. When the white player picks up his king and rook (in that order) to castle long black grabs his king to make a move before white has completed his..which is illegal! and the board is now blank.

    This game was played at a time when your opponent was in title to force you to make a king-move of his choice if you made an illegal move. Problem solved. White completes his Long Castle. Forces Black to play Ka2 and proceeds to mate with Rd3, and Ra3# after blacks Ka1...

    Funky stuff.

    technically it's a draw due to insufficient material...

    This is the daily puzzle for Monday 18/Feb/13 - it looks as if a mistake was made in the format of the FEN string (one too many quotation marks) which may be why it didn't post correctly...

    It's White to move & mate in 2.


    { For  those of you who are interested, look at lines 482 to 488 of the page source code ! }

    It's White to move & mate in 2.

    Is that a little bit too easy for a daily puzzle?

    The puzzle doesn't show up on the daily puzzle page, but it does on the chess.com home page.  I'm pretty sure the solution is:

    1.Qxh5+  gxh5, 2. Rxh5#
    or
    1.Qxh5+  Kg7    2. Qh7#
    or
    1.Qxh5+  Kg8    2. Qh7#
