My dad had a little booklet on chess from 1977 and I looked through it. I found a nice puzzle by A. Selsniew. Perhaps you guys have seen it before, that would be a shame :)
pb7,pd5,rc8 mate ?
An attempt for last natural (but not best) moves (although I think it is a study and finding the move before this position looks unnatual)
#3. Qg8+,ne8 ,Qxn mate
MartinO pointed this out:
1.b7?? dxc6 2.bxa8+ Kxa8 and black will win the pawn ending
so after 1. pb7 the d pawn will capture the rook..
You are correct the moves I made there doesn't lead to the quickest victory and your mate is correct. I only made the moves look somewhat natural and not the best.
#1 pb7,pd5(blacks only move) and rc8 mate
You have a hanging rook on c6.
ahhh.....your correct.I have the wrong pawn. Your father has good chess taste.
