This puzzle is real hard for me, its on my phone and i've been trying to solve it :P .. But not to mention I'm only 1200 rated haha!You are playing White:
anyone know ?
i'm new here ^^
I'm sorry, but that is not checkmate.
I think this is how one does the mate.
i can't solve that with 2 moves ._.
How about Qd2 as the first move? the only options for black are Kc4, followed by Qa2, or Rd2, followed by Ne3
close but there's Nd4 there
Completely forgot that. Geez...
So, starting with Qc2. If he does Nd4, finish with c4.
Oh, that's already in the solution you linked...
1. Q-d2 N-d4 2. N-e3#
1. Q-d2 K-c4 2. Q-a1#
1. Q-d2 c4 2. N-e3# Not sure, but all look good.
Nd4 removes the pin so Ne3 Rxe3
Qc2 Nd4 c4#... yes, Qc2 is the solution.
After Qc2, can't black just push the pawn to c4, protecting the rook?
