    Hi Salvap, those sets are very nice. I really like that bohemian set.

    When I study chess, and especially endgames, I prefer the bigger sets:

    (white to play and checkmates black in 3 moves)

    Surely any rook move works for the 1st move?

  • #185

    white: Ke6 Re1

    black: Ke8

    white checkmates black in 3 moves:

    1. Re2, Re3, Re4 or Re5 - Kd8 or Kf8

    2. Rook to the c-file  (if 1. ... - Kd8) or rook to the g-file (if 1. ... - Kf8) - Ke8

    3. mate on c8 or g8

    null

    1. Rc1, Kd8; 2.Rc2, Ke8; 3. Rc8 mate. Similar technique for any R move along the first rank, as Matt suggests. Or any R move along the E file. So, R-anywhere mates in three.

    It's cool Bananamoon, but what would you use it for? 

    I just use my normal set for analysis. But I still wanted to join in with this thread so I've posted a picture of my bookends instead - look upon them and praise them!
