    So then 126 is it?  Solved??!!! 

    LOL ... I had replied that this couldn't work, as I had the Rf5, blocking the d4 from Bh8 defense!  

    EXCELLENT :)

    1.Qxd2  and whatever black does 2.Nb4#. I solved it in two minutes!! It's so simple everybody can do it! Just think about the obvious moves.

    NOPE, pawn takes rook on C file ... we've been thinking about the obvious moves for 8 pages now! :)

    Personally relieved to see the answer and know how close I was ... thanks Asorski!

    I fail to see how Re1 was a mate ...  must assume you were just trying to brush off the problem and move on.

    You do mean E4 to E1 right?

    My first attempt at sol'n, "Qxf3 then E4 to E5" fails because Kxc4. 

    I just found a fatal flaw in my attempt in post 133 also.. Kc6 then Bc5.  That turns it into a 3 move mate.

    If you took the time to read the post (#89 on page 5) you'd get to see that the really cool counter-intuitive move Re1 is the solution.

    Very well said DalaiLuke, everybody's thinking of the obvious move!

    GM_Hiceberg, did you really used an engine?

    Oh, but there's no way he could have used an engine when we have all those extra pieces on the board, right? Wink

    Most engines never accept more than the usual pieces but some engines do!

    Adriandmen a problem composer himself later admitted that he checked the puzzle with Apwin a solving engine, and it found the mate in 2! Not only that, Apwin confirmed the key move. That no mate is possible except with that amazing 1. Re1 move!!
