What exactly is a reverse help mate? Or a help mate in general for that matter?
As for #330 I just don't what black would do after b7
I am not sure if this is exact but i mean help mate is when black pieces help white and reverse - white king must be mated instead of black.
And i must say this puzzle is a joke .
In that case 0) set up board correctly
then procede with the 2 move checkmate
Yes, after placing white king and queen on normal places it is well known blunder mate:
It is strange that even when white king is on 'd1' solution is possible :
How'd did you manage to get it to do that? Doesn't it only allow legal moves?
I was thinking this way : this is a helpmate puzzle and if so, any help is welcome. And when it appeared that the white king can fly from time to time , i used this .
This puzzle is not a joke :
white to play and win
Puzzle 327 @Sherlocks_Holmes, I just did this in very shallow analysis and I think the solution posted by nswwsn may be flawed. . . sorry if this is redundant or has already been covered
I don't have the solution for 327,so we can discuss it .
I think after 1.Nd5 a4 white can play 2.Nb6+ :
@ element18 Although I can't say I'm certain I'm right (I realized my solution for 339 is quite wrong) in 327 I responded to a4 with Nb6+ followed by Nxa4
Caiello, in your line black can play 5...Qc1 :
Yeah I am an idiot there i looked at it again this morning and was on my way to say this line but you guys beat me to the punch. sorry about that, i'll have to give these more of a good think before posting next time eh?
It's ok, we paid attention to this line of the puzzle and it is interesting too
WhenI am hungry:
The name of the blog comes from the first puzzles .Unfortunately, i have no more from that kind, but have many others.
I am sorry, but in #339 i posted a wrong position - the 3 white pawns on the left must be a row up :
White to play and win
I apologize once again - i noticed it just now - wanted to post the solution and saw the difference in positions.
The solution for #350 -author - A.Dunder :
