Excellent and entertaining puzzle! Thank you, kasparov5!
Got it first try
One of the most original puzzles I have ever seen.
Heh, I posted this on the forums too, a short while after I joined.
Also, when you post alternatives, make sure black can't hang on by a thread.
What is wrong with Qxe5 ?
Qxe5+ is blocked by Be6. It only delays mate by one move, but hey, when a puzzle asks for mate in one, it really has to be mate in one move.
awesome, so many tries and mates in like two but i finally found the one move
what if dxc8=N?
oh never mind Ke8
oh my god what the hell
lol, please use the analysis board before you post "alternatives", especially when you claim your solution is right.
I finally solved it, now I can do my homework.
Later...types on google, hardest MATE IN 2 PUZZLE!!!
that's not mate in one - Bb7
it is, there is a Queen on d8 that just promoted but you are only looking at the rook.
You can't promote that pawn because the black bishop in c8 is gonna check your king.
