    how about this one

    Impossible because in order for Ke7, the king would have had to travel through squares defended by pawns and of course the king can't move through check. 

    The king can travel by b5 - a6 - b7

    so it is possible

    You're right Adriandmen the answer was to go via b7 with a knight in between

    OKay, this is an anti-puzzle. White to AVOID checkmating black !!!

    Three possible solutions:

    1. Offer a draw.

    2. If Black is stupid enough to decline the offer, let your time run out. The arbiter has to declare the game a draw, since ALL moves are forced and lead to mate for white (which means, Black has no winning chances).

    3. Resign (fastest, but costliest).

    thank for the correct answer. who would have guessed that?

    Yes. Thanks for the detailed answer. Was the e-pawn being on e6, the White Rook would have never be able to go thru, but on e5 as demonstrated it's acheviable.

    also either d-pawn or f-pawn would have to remain held back until the bishop makes through

    You forget that the Queen and bishop has to get out. You need to start out playing e3 and d3. :)

    you're right Fralnp! it may look like your puzzle but i just wanted to show that if the pawn on e5 was on e6 the rook could be there by promotion
