easiest checkmate, i've ever seen, this should for elementary non-rated beginnners!
Darn. I though I would need to use the rook. Guess not.
Ha, I went for Ra1 initally... great puzzle.
Excellent last move, very instructive, thanx for sharing...
This one is a little more challenging
ok what is wrong with 4.Ra1#?
Seriously, Lloyd, what is wrong with spending 2 seconds to look at that for yourself? With your rating and experience in posting, surely wouldn't take as long as it took you to write the post....
I tried RA1 AS well
Actually 4. Ra1 # is an equally acceptable solution
Actually I meant to write Ra1+...# (Shortcut for:4. Ra1+ Qa5 / 5.Rxa5 bxa5 / 6Qa6#My keyboard for some reason must have skipped those dots and the "+" Anyway, my bad. Corrected.
nice 4th move with the queen
Equally as good with the rook. Don't you think ?
Black Queen can block the Rook.
Sh1t, did'nt see that. Thanks.
Nice puzzle, but a little too simple.
Classic.Please be relevant, helpful & nice!
4. Ra1 leads to Black playing Qa5
5. Rxa5 bxa5
I tried this mate before...
