    LOL I like that, but admittedly was the last thing on my mind at this stage in the game.

    A common enough trick in chess puzzles & it caught me out again  Yell

    It exploits the prejudice most of us have that you can't get to such a late stage in a game & still be able to castle !

    Puzzles!  They're puzzles; not games!!  To solve them, you must think differently; not like you think playing a game!!!

    Fitting title. Tricky puzzle though; wasn't thinking of castling at all.

    little weird checkmate. Castling is generally for defense, but in this case we used it to checkmate.

    If they say castling is an option, you will see the solution.  It's best to just assume that it's an option.
