Red = Normal puzzle
Pink = Pink Panther Powerful
Black = Special Mate in 3
Green = Special Mate in 4
Gold = Royal Puzzle
1.Re8! and zugzwang
1. Rh7 Rg3 2. Nf2
I think Frankwho got it.
He only listed partial answer
#54 qb7,fp.or r. moves and qxp mate...i stand corrected fp. move allows f5 escape---hmmmmm
Qc5! forces black to move a pawn of his rook.
i see if black rook moves,n. can mate--so a rook e8(a waiting move) wins there .if black plays pawn f4 after re8 where's mate ?
qc5,pf4, ? where's mate....
i assume white pawns are toward the top.....
ahhhhhhh! re8 allows q. to come across to h7+ if pf4 !! Very good ..i like being put to the test. nice job !!
I'm pretty sure I got it
I'm pretty sure I got it
that's why I deleted my comment

- iixxPROxxii: 1.Qc5 threads 2.Qxd5#, but black can defend with 1...f4!!
- Fredman359: After 1.Rh7 black can defend the mate with 1...f4
- Frankwho: Congratulations. You found the right answer!!
- Also congratulations to: StMichaelD and DangCit
- Eddysallin: 1.Qb7 is refuted by 1...Rxe3!!
