Here's a nice good Sunday puzzle. Mate in 2.
A tougher one. Mate in 9.
after 3. Re1; why can't Queen take the rook? may be i am missing something; but that looks like a Checkmate.
Oh :-P You're right. nvm
Does chess.com still accept daily puzzle submissions?
if 2. Kxa2 then 2... Ra7#
4. Kd6 draw or K moves Kxd7 draw
Or 1. (anything) draws faster so please delete this stupid puzzle OP
Hello everyone! I would like to share with you a chess puzzle from bruce pandolfini's book. Here it is:
White to move and win.
Of course promoting to a Queen or Rook leads to a draw!
Solution next Sunday. June 10, 2012.
Hello everyone! I would like to share with you my original 2-move chess composition containing pin and counter-pin!

there is more to this puzzle but the editor would not let me add it so this is all I could put...
This is a mate in 2. It's just one of my ideas.
Hey chessgm8. Nice idea but flawed.
1.Nc5 can be countered by 1...c6!, 1...Nc6!, 1...Rd1!, 1...Kd8! and 1...Kb8! preventing mate in 2 and winning easily for black. Also after 1.Nc5 Nd6 2.Rh8+ Ne8 3.Rxe8 is mate in 3.
