is my amended solution not correct
No, it's not a helpmate puzzle, black wouldn't play Nxf4. Kxe6 maybe.
Hahaha There is no mate in 2, but only mate in 3 (many)
Let's see Miss Qweeni2. I qoute you on that!
We are looking here for a mate in 2 solution, not mate in three. Very difficult isn't it?
Wow. Got it. I'll just type out the solutions.
Horse on c8 takes e7 check then Rook to c6 mate I think. looked at it for 8mins.
CONGRATULATIONS Scottrf, your'e the second person to solve. The first one is GM-Hiceberg (See post No. 46) . You too will also receive a trophy!
Here is the Diagram with complete solution:
Sorry swarf but 1. Re1!! waiting, is the correct answer.
Thanks for solving.
Ah, I saw his Re1 post, but it didn't register because he didn't post a continuation and I hadn't got rid of the other piece movements by process of elimination. Actually found it independently.
What an amazing puzzle. Impossible to believe that all of black's replies leave a mate in 1.
Sorry, I am wrong ,perhaps a little more time is needed for this one but I'm off for a beer, maybe next time I'll get it right.x
What about 1. Qxf3 ... 2. Rd4#?
2 is bxc4, no mate.
Who said this problem is busted?
Now you see. Finding the shocking 1. Re1!! waiting move, is very difficult to comprehend! It's out of this world! This is the most amazing problem/key move I've ever seen. I hope you like it. I wonder Who compose this thing!

Again congratulations to the solver GM-Hiceberg and Scottrf!
Well done! Great job!
Watchout for my next difficult puzzle soon!
Yah, really amazing!
I can sleep soundly now.
qxp,nxq ,nxn mate ?
The solution has been found.
NxQ isn't forced.
Rcd4 forcing king to C file Qc2 to finish. maybe. possibly.
Bxc2 after Qc2. Look page before, the puzzle has been solved.
How do you people that solve it aren't just using a computer anyway? For example: Hiceberg is a rank beginner based on his game history, so although he could have solved it on his own, the chances are unlikely.
