Hello everyone. Here is one of my harder puzzles .
This is a mate in 3, and I like this one very much!!
White mates in 3
1. Nc8 Ke4 (e4 Rc5#) 2. Rd7 Kf5 3. Nd6#
Couldn't agree anymore. Why does someone in Europe or Asia always get these...
ha ha ha
Congratulations MaartenSmit. You've got the right answer. 1.Nc8! leads to a mate in 3!!.
Haha y2721, sorry for that. I should post my puzzle right now, so you also have a chance to solve it . Well I am going to start composing a new puzzle .
My first intention was Nd5, which doesn't work after e4 or Ke4, but incidentally there's the beautiful 1. Nd5 Kxe6 2. Nc3+ Kd6 3. Nxb5# :)
well done maartenSmit
