Heh...poor forkman's become a running gag in this thread.
This is one I created. Mate in 5. This is challenging.
definitely a few pretty challenging puzzles. ive been trying to come up with something original. just havnt found anything that i like yet
So this is where chess.com daily puzzle goes by. Cool!
Try this one:
I really would love to solve great puzzles likes this but the positions doenst seem to come out of any opening like caro, sicilian, french, qgd, ki, nimzo, etc etc.... Nice post though.
But why does that matter?
what about 1. Nd6#
Mate in 3...
From a real game...
Someone allready answered but Ra7# would be mate if black K took Qa2
Your right,I caught that to
WHITE TO MOVE
CHECKMATE IN ONE MOVE
hope you like it!
Nice trick,got me,never thought of castling,very clever
easy mate in 1
Bb5,or Bb3 should be mate in 1,black's Q and R are pinned on either side,but K can not move into check from Qc3, 1.Qb2...KxQb2,do not see mate in one!!!
Either B should be able to mate in one ,since Q and both R's are pinned so neither can take whichever B you check with,even if you could take B you would be in check with Q.Can you explain this to me,I'm confused
If Kxa2,it's mate in two with white R to a file, I think it's Ra6,or Ra5,I do not have puzzle in front of me,but it's still a mate in two as long as R goes to a file#
