Hello, this is my 48th chess problem:
White mates in 2
I haven't check this puzzle with an engine as I have difficulty downloading the file. I hope It got no cook!
So there is one. Thank you s0030135 for finding one.
Now, see if you can find another after I made my correction.
Please see my edited post No.1 and try to mate in 2 again.
Sorry that I mistakenly made my comment a puzzle.
Ok. You are bright solver huh! 1. Rf2!! is a "waiting for the day" move.
CONGRATULATIONS, You have solved this problem!
Why wouldn't black go Kd3?
Then white mates with Nc5#.
This problem featured 3 different change mates.
A look at the diagram reveals that Black is in zugzwang. If it is Black to move the set mates are the following:
a. ...Kd3 1. Qxh7#
b. ...d3 1. Rc4#
c. ...e2 1. Nf2#
Plus other mates: (...Bg6 1. Bxg6 and ...Bf5 1. Qxf5#)
After the waiting 1. Rf2!!, the changemate I referred to were:
a. 1...Kd3 2. Nc5# (instead of Qxh7#)
b. 1...d3 2. Qc4# (instead of Rc4#)
c. 1...e2 2. Qf3# (instead of Nf2#)
Why wouldn't black go Kd3? nc5mate......how about p.d3---
Why wouldn't black go Kd3? nc5mate......how about p.d3---nc5 + does not cover the escape of d4
Then white mates with Nc5#. does not cover d4, Qc4 +allows kxq
For less-industrious solver, please check comment no. 10. The complete solution is posted there including the change mates.
Nice puzzle Asorski. You always have those funny zugzwang puzzles. Congratulations Asorski. Keep on the good work.
