easier than it looked :->
Without knowing it was "mate in 2," the 1.e5... 2.d6+ sequence jumped out as the best choice - then it turned out that the knight and bishop had all escape squares covered - checkmate.
Took a minite,but was able to solve 1.e5...Nc3, 2.Rd6#,Thank'sChess.Com.Good day chess head's.The K really was stuck you just had to find a way to check,and you had two move's to do it,was able to see the pawn and R would fit the bill.Nice puzzle!!!
anupralhad wrote " nice n hard "
then why is it soo easy for everyone else?
Really quite straightforward when you see it but not obvious to me at first.
Easy because the choices were obvious!
This puzzle sucks...
good one !
also mate 1.f4 ... 2.f5+ gxf5 3.exf5#
took a little time to clear my head,now i'm ready for the day !
