Hello this is my 41st Chess Problem here at CHESS.com:
An Asorski Original
White mates in 2
Nah, edit because wrong diagram
If Bg1 then I think Rd3 delays mate.
Lincolm, Dangcit is correct. 1. Bg1! Rd3!!
I can't seem to find a way to cover both d3 and d4 so as to cut off escape routes. Each time I cover those spaces I end up opening others. This is a hard one, Asorski.
Now I got it. First I was thinking about 1.Qc5 threading 2.Nf2#. But black can defend with 1...Rd4!! making an escape route for the king. But 1.Qa7!! pins the Rook (so after 1...Rd4 2.Qxa7):
Great puzzle Asorski. This is one of the best puzzles I've ever seen.
~~ Adriandmen ~~
Hello solution est:1)Qa7 ameninta 2)Nf2++ 1...Rf7 2c5++
1...Rd4 2 Qxh7++ ; 1...Kd3 2 Nf2++
1...Rxa7 2 c5++ ok gut problem mister asorski !!!
DangCit recognizes the difficulty of this problem.
Adriandmen, not only you have posted your solution, you also provided a diagram for this problem. I feel that you are happy solving this problem.
CONGRATULATIONS to Adriandmen and Geticus. Both solvers found the key move but Adriandmen got it first! The two of you will receive a trophy!
Always good problem you made there.
Thanks, just as good as your comment!
Nicely done, Adriandmen. I looked at Qa7 but missed the Qh7# if Rd4. And nice puzzle Asorski.
Thank you DangCit, but the congrats should be to Asorski. He made this incredible puzzle. So, congratulations Asorski.
Keep on composing, because you make awesome puzzles Asorski.
I cant wait for the next puzzle .
Thank you DangCit and Adriandmen.
After several failed puzzle, I feel great again!
