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!
Here it is: White to move mate in 2!
(Dedicated to my new friend Hairball1 and to the whole chess.com community)
An Asorski Original
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.
I saw this in a game, I think Nicholas Rossolimo was white. I was impressed.

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
Well then, how about it?
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.
a game i played a few days ago...got a nice puzzle out of it. :)
Haha, how did you even get to that position? :P
Please help decipher and teach a noob
