Problem ID: 0055281
why not Ba7? kinda same effect
because next move Kc8 leads to checkmate by Ra8
thug nasty shiz yo.
Be5 may also be checkmate after Kc8
I failed :( but that was a nice one
How would black block the discovered check after Be5? (Be5#)
I think this move should be included in the tactic
both Bd6 and Be5 are checkmate at move 2, so this move is not included in the tactic
If you remove the e6 pawn, we could have the Ra8 move on the second turn.
But of course, this game actually happened, so you can't do that... amiright?
yes Be5 is also checkmate. Just move your bishop away, anywhere really, and then if anything happens to it u can always Ra8 next move. Just one extra move. Ensured checkmate.
Nice mate in two.
there's lots of ways to mate, Re8# or Bd6# or Be5# or...
Took me an awful long time to see this one through.. time to close it down.
how can this be a windmill?
