Amazing what Knights can do! That's why I take them off the board.
True, Nxa2 isn't forced, but 2. Kxa2 is mated by 2... Ra7#. Since the puzzler doesn't 'make' white's move... you simply have to respond to the move made.
The smothered mate isn't forced, but it is a forced mate in 2.
thats right it's a force mate nothing u can do about it
Looks like a forced mate to me. Smothering him is a good way to do it. Nothing he can do about it. But, White made the wrong moves.
Guys I think giving a name to your puzzles would be useful- otherwise people don't know what to look for: a combination, a mate in 1, 2, 10, etc. Just a request
Good idea efhaddad88
why move RC8?
just a random move...white is dead any move he makes
Ok, eeerr, some random puzzle for me to figure out how to enter puzzles :-)
Cerebral Assassin, what is Black's continuation after 1...Rf8 - 2. Qc4?
Oh wait, forgot the Rc1 hangs. Nevermind then. He he.
some of these puzzles are sooo random- please give TITLES to them so there is some way to play them. Otherwise it's like, click and drag until something happens!
Sometimes the opponents move doesn't make since.
