This is not really a chess puzzle as such, but I heard about this question posed by Sam Loyd and thought the solution was quite funny. You'll have to think a little creatively to solve this.
Devise a position where:
Black is in checkmate
White has only two Rooks, a Knight, and a King
Black has only a King
Black's King is not on the edge of the board
White's King does not assist in the mate
Does the position also have to be legal? If not, I think this works:
You got it! Nice ;)
