First post here...
what about 1.Rhg6 ...
if 1. ... Qxg6 2.Nd3 (or Nc4)#
if 1. ...Qc7+ 2.Nc3#
if 1. ...Qxe5 2.Nc3 (or Nd2)#
There's no mate in two.
Not sure why everybody still talks about this. The h2 pawn should obviously be a7 assuming the board's upside down. Otherwise, there isn't any solution for this. No move stops (Assuming the board really is with pawn at h2) rook or queen block to make that third move.
Poster should just pay more attention, instead of letting this go and not replying further.
Don't try ! It is impossible even engine don't get it ! ^__^
These are all of the mate in two combos I see...
if Rxf5 then... 2.
if Rxh3 then... 2. Nb1 to a3,c3,or d2 #
if Rxh6 then... 2. Nb1 to a3,c3,or d2 #
if Rh4 then either : 2.Nb1 to a3,c3,or d2 # or Nb2 to a4,c4,d3 or d1#
if Rg4 then: 2.Nb1 to a3,c3,or d2 #
You listed a lot of possible moves, but neglected to list Rg5, which move stops mate in 2 ... because (all together now) THERE IS NO MATE IN 2!
You were right, I overlooked that possibility, but...
How bout 1.Qb3c3,then no matter how black responds I can move either of two knights or a bishop opening the possibility for a discovered mate on the next move. There is no one move black can make to impede the second move that can stop all three of the possible discovered checks for mate.
If you think I am wrong, tell me the move that would stop all three possibilities simultaneously.
1. ... Qa7 stops all possible mates in 2. Here is every possibly check that white can play on move 2 after Qa7:
There is no mate in 2 ... unless the board is upside down.
Stockfish only finds mate in 3.
There is mate in 2
Ng6 Re5 2.Nc3#
There's no mate in 2.
Nomadic Knight is a cop! Glory Alleluiah!
