1Kf6 Kg8 2Rh5 Kf8 3Rh8#
sorry guys, I solved the puzzled and cleared the board.
mate in 0!
really tough and a marvellous puzzle
Defintely king to move first.
No! With king rook mates the king has to be forced into the corner. Therefore it is rook to the 6th rank R-e6 then follow up with r-f6 giving the black king fewer places to go. The trick is to always ensure that the king has a legal move.
the ninja problem
no king 2 mate...
Three way - 1st Kf6 Kh8
2nd Kf6 Kh6
3rd Kf6 Kg8
im puzzeled got me this time
you all complaining of easy puzzle ok imaginary puzzle now, kasparov got migraine for this ...
With the king on f6 and Rook on e5 it is always mate-in-two no matter where the Black king is (h6, h7, h8, g8 or f8) or whose turn it is to move. This is a basic position I have used many times to help beginners learn to mate with king and rook. Try it for yourself.
It's a trick question. THey will post the answer tomorrow. :)
Only surefire mate in 3 starts with Kf6.
It's normal. When the king is mated normally contenders quit the battlefield
Could someone help us, please:)
