nice! : D makes me feel good. the first move was a bit hard for me to find. the rest was easy : D!
if white moves rook to c2; then black would take it with knight.
That's right man23chess. That puzzle is STUPID.
jonnyearth if knight takes rook on c2 then bishop to f5 mate
if I was playing black, when rook moved to c2 I would have taken it with my knight. Even if I made the same move with the knight to g4, when the rook came over to h2 I would have had another opportunity to take it with my knight rather than taking the pawn with the king
1. If 1... Nxc2?? then 2. Bg2#.
2. If 2... Nxh2?? then 3. Bg2#.
A good puzzle, a bit difficult for a beginner like me. I needed help for the two first movements , but after that i was able to solve the puzzle by myself . Thanks for the explanation about the knight on e3 ;)
If Bf5+ Black can postpone to mate in 7:
So 1. Rc2+ is the fastest mate.
Very good puzzle. Got the first and second move correct, but needed help on the third.
I'm with Wirekingjohn...why not respond Nc2?
good one indeed.
Toughest one yet!
I made some wrong moves
not in 1st attempt
