To all you "Easy" people....do you not know that it's Sunday?
will anybody fail to solve such problem?
What can you say ?
Here's a puzzle I found on another site a few months ago - they publish one 'Easy' & one 'Hard' puzzle every day. This was the easy puzzle ! ....
White to move & mate in 2
Hint: It's all about finding the right square on which to position the white queen. Black has choices but there is no defense !View the moves list to see all the solutions.
Interesting. Had I not seen it was "mate in 1" I would have moved1. Qb6, black is forced to move his Rook to someplace else on the 8th rank,2. Qxb7#
Me gusta. After the key move, Black can take the Rook and be mated, move his King and self-pin the g-pawn (and be mated), move his Rook and be mated, or check White and be mated. Nice!
this puzzle should be time bound
Excellent puzzle; thanks for posting it.
Just as knowing today's daily puzzle was "mate in 1" made me find the right solution;in the puzzle you posted, it was knowing the problem was "mate in 2" that made me look for and find the right solution.
2 trys cause never knew if the pawn kills the queen the bishop is giving check...
