@grandmaster: there is at least a 2nd choice 38...Rg7+ to mate, and I think more choices beforehand too
Do you mean Rxg2? You can't get to g7 with the rook. But there's also 38...Rf4+ 39. Ka5 Ra4#.
thanks GrandMaster3141. easy, you can to say it.
This is an actual position from one of my games. Easy mate.
Here is another one. Blacks Rd8 move is just a placeholder; he could have made any other move (except the ones shown in the variations) with the same result.
what about pawn b5 blocks queen.
A good mate
what on earth is FEN format ??
FEN is the format that computers use to set the position of a game. You can use FEN to set up puzzles! Open up the game you want to use, copy the FEN on the right side of the screen, and paste it into the box that says "Use an FEN string" after you click the puzzle option. The computer will then set up the game!
I like J.Ward vs ??? Easy but, but I missed the easiest move of the Queen and a first time for me was obvious the Queen appeared in front of the King. thanks J.ward
Mate in 2
Puzzle was made by B.G. Laws
I submitted my puzzle to the daily puzzles. :) I also have it posted here:
It is not a mate in 330 lol It is a mate in 3. :)
Black can do En passant.
forkman, you missed a mate in one and your mate is totally unforced and much longer than neccessary. Chessnoob you also missed a mate in one.
