Congratulations Scottrf.

Thanks for solving but that is not the composer's idea. Now see if you can mate in 2 after I edited the diagram.

Please try to mate in 2 again. Thanks.

No. I still don't have an Apwin. I'll tell you if I'm done with it.

I can because there's something wrong with the diagram. Please try again, Mindcracker Problems comes only in a Blue Moon!

What??

I believe the composer's idea is very difficult.

Can you please check this with Apwin?

Apwin also says there is no solution .

What was the composers idea?
