this occurs in games all the time....tooooooooooooo easy
"Mate in two 1. Be6? d3??, Nd5#"
Where do you get this? Both players make grievous blunders and it ends in a mate,.
After 1.Be6, black plays 1.... Bxf3+ and even with his huge material advantage it wil take while about 6 moves to get a checkmate.
White should play the obvious 1.Qxf2 - capturing black's Queen and threatening2.Qxh4# However, 1. ... Bh3 does seem to force it to mate in 3.
I have yet to find mate-in-2, but 1.Be6 does not get it
qf7 also results in mate.
simple mates like this can easily be missed under time pressure!
both prove very challenging...
Well lets just say I didn't notice the rook...........
it's very easy
We've had this before I think
I believe it was similar to yesterday's. I could be wrong, and I am too lazy to check right now :)
