Castling was not in my mind 2 solve this puzzle...
Did not think of castling.tried it after moving N three times,first thought was Rf1,but did not see move after black K could move to g2,other than rechecking with Rg1 and then black K could just go back to f3.Pretty sneaky,Thank's Chess.Com.good day chess heads. 1-0 chess.com,we will see what tommorow bring's
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
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 !
First time I miss the puzzle in a while, very stylish :D
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.
A castle to checkmate. Clever setup.
I love this. "Consider all possibilities"
castling really?? last thing
Doesn't Rf1 also work?
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.
well, you guys tricked me, I tried every move but castling, as it was unreal to me, that both pieces hadn`t moved yet...
