I'm interested in seeing a mate in 1 with as many possible solution. For example
The puzzle shown here has 3 solution
Here's my shot. Not legal positions though. I count 34
I count 36
Good call. I had just woken up when I posted that. For some reason I thought moving the bishop to the 8th rank left the king safe. dur.
oh. i missed those too, so i counted 36 besides those so 38 =0
I count 36. Remember that Bc6+ and Be6+ are not mates.
That was really fun.
I could count only 33.
I counted 27 (I think) and that doesn't even get to the queens..
I've always liked tis one, from tim Krabbe's site:
This is a legal position with promoted men.
White has 48 legal moves, 47 of which is mate in 1. The 48th move, Qe6+, forces Black to mate White in 1. This surely has to be the WORST move ever...
hmm what about a posiiton where all of whites legal moves except one forces mate in 2 , and that one move is the ONLY check, and it forces black to mate in one.
Amazing positions. I never imagined to say the least
The LEGAL position:
7 pawn checkmates
4 knight checkmates
4 queen checkmates
25 bishop checkmates
7 rook checkmates = 47 checkmates! Count them all!
