can be mates in 2 moves use white bisoph in second move
Too easy. How can somebody miss this?
1. Qc7+ ...Ka8
2. Bxb6 ...Rxd3? (...Rd7! 3.Be4+ ...Bd5 4.Bxd5+ ...Rxd5 5.Qa7# or Qc8# at least is a fighting attempt, and breaks the "mate in 3".)
3. Qa7# (kiss of death).
Check out post #243.
An elementary the weak c7 square is key.
i don't understand...why can't the second move be Be4? wouldn't that be mate in 2?
Because either black bishop or black rook can get in the way
sheesh...need to learn how see through things :)
i think there is an easy way to mate in 2
Please show the moves.
