Respect the pawn
A very instructive puzzle! Thanks.
I'm refering/replying to post #12.
That's certainly not mate in two Delta.. Have you considered 1. ... Re5?
Don't get confused, the black is moving downward and the white is vice versa.
Mate in two
Where did you get this puzzIe? Did you make it up?
I don't see that this is a forced mate in 2. After 1. Rf7 what if Black plays 1. ... Re5 because 1. ... Bxf7 is not forced. The idea behind Bxr7 is to prevent 2. Qe6# (even though it still allows 2. Qxf7#); however, if 1. ... Re5 2. Bxe5 Pxe5 gives the black king a temporary escape route.
Black should still easily loose this game; but, it is not a forced mate in 2 unless I've over-looked something.
P.S. The daily puzzle was great!
A great puzzle, gotta' love those pawns!
solved in one
this really teaches to THINK before you move. dont go for the obivious!
Omg the answer is three posts above yours and yet still you posted that.
Power of the pawn!
You're right I was in a hurry when I looked at this and didn't read any of the other post.
Sorry for questioning you. Now that I'm not in such a hurry it all makes perfect sense. Good puzzle.
