Easy two move checkmate.
Get him in checkmate.
Wonder how to get the queen out???
Ng6# is another option.
This position can never occur in 2 moves, it's only 3 minimum if White. If you're Black, you can do it in 2 moves.
The f1 Bishop can not come out in Standard Chess if the e2 and g2 pawns haven't been moved.
Although I gave the answer, this position and material is impossible.
Were the moves made purposely, or is it an artificial game? There were so many good moves missed, and even a mate was missed.
#1 is called the 'fools mate'.
To #4: Um, 43. Rg8#?
And to #5, Ng6# also works.
i know because i did not put much thought into the puzzle above i was in a hurry
not sure if i have a narrow viewpoint here but i'm not seeing many of these puzzles as being relevent to the game since they're such impossible positions.
i feel bad for both UK and America chess
