    Chesscrazy127, that's a good example of a smothered mate, but isn't checkmate as white can play 2.Kxa2 and avoid the mate.

    if 2. Kxa2 then 2... Ra7#

    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.

    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.

    I saw this in a game, I think Nicholas Rossolimo was white. I was impressed.

    HARD.

    Nice little puzzle, I'd say it's quite hard, but not too hard.

    I hope this is a good problem :) I tried my best ;D

    Black to move, difficulty is.. medium? 

    Btw... the king moves to h8 because if it moves to g7, then the rook can move to h4 and push the pawn after black queens, gaining tempo and a winning advantage

    I just finished this one recently, Black can win a queen, or mate in 4+ moves depending on how unsportsmanlike White is :P

    Also, check the move list after you solve it.
