ELEVEN hours ago have passed.

No one dared to solve this simple 2-mover problem?

Come on!

Finally!

CONGRATULATIONS to Caiello!

You have solved this problem!

One more tricky shot: 1. Bb3 is wrong. (Find Black's defense after 1. Bb3??).

How about pawn e4 to e5. Then knight c5 to e4. That is checkmate regardless of how black defends.

@Gimpalersan : The knight cannot move, it's pinned by black queen.

Find Black's defense after White plays 1. Bb3??

You got it Caiello!

White needs to reserve a square for the Knight on c5. The move 1. Bc4 did just that. Now 1. Bb3 is an obstruction to the Knight on c5 as after ...Qh4!! either 2. Nd7+ or 2. Ne6+ covers g4 (...Kg4!!) as shown by Caiello's post no. 5.

1. Nce6+ is illegal. The Knight on c5 is pinned by Black Qf2.

My bad. I meant the other knight. Knight on d6 to e4. That is my fault. Sorry about that.

If 1. e5 (threat: 2. Nde4#) Black counters with ...Qxc5+!!

Then the white rook takes the queen and checkmates the black king.
