hehe chessmaniac its a mate in 2, you've posted this as "staircase2" or something. ive already told you off dere
Here my first...
Am I looking at this wrong? Rh5 checkmate. nd6?
"Back to Tactics"
Very nice, chessguy, you managed to lose your only pawn.
Seems like it would be better to create an invite puzzle group from members. I love the chess.com puzzles, but I must admit, there are so many puzzles with errors that are submitted (or with the opponent responding in a way that's almost a help mate) that contain errors, it may be more work for you guys double checking every puzzle! And then there are the composed problems which would never happen in a real game, which there is some value too, but I think the problems that mimic real game scenarious are far better. I mean I guess I'm just thinking about the quality of the puzzle ya know :-).
Just my two cents.
I made this puzzle from a tactics trainer problem (in which were 2 moves). There are too many options for black's move 7, so i'll tell you what i chose: 7...h6.
Puzzle "Cage": Mate in 13, level of difficulty- hard.
This is not the right solution! There is a quicker mate in 8 as appears in comment #274.
Hey guys, these are the last few moves of a nice endgame I played in live chess. I want to see if someone can figure it out.
White to move and mate in 6. Good luck! This would make a great daily puzzle.
but Kxa2 is Ra7 # anyway so it is a forced mate in 2
Here is another endgame from one of my online chess games. I found a quicker forced mate than the one that I played after I finished the game, so here's that one.
White to move and mate in 4.
nice one..a few possibilities, but interesting to find the quickest
Okay, here's a puzzle that I've come up with. I'm not sure how hard it is. I guess it would depend on your level of skill.
Here's another puzzle.
White to move and mate in 11.
Not sure if this would be a logical sequence of moves, so please tell me if I went wrong somewhere.
Black to move and mate in 4.
I don't think the last two puzzles work. Post 259 has several moves where black can deviate, first on move 1 by ...Bf6. I haven't analysed them deeply, so you might still have the mate in 11.
However, I know that post 260 isn't mate in four like you've set up, because if white plays c3, c4, Rd2, or Kd2 on move 4, black doesn't have mate in 1.
White to move and mate in 3.
