    Rats! I try to solve these things without looking at the hint. I found f4, which is mate in 3.

    Doesn't 1. f4  any 2. f5+ gxf 3. exf checkmate also work?  

  • #131

    Bit too easy..

  • #132

    nice puzzle

  • #133

    pretty obvious

  • #134

    so simple

  • #135

    easy

    Forced mate.

    I think the right solution is: 1. f2-f4 and 2.f4-f5#. The other solution is not actually mate in 2 if black moves 1... RxC2.

    Have another look... 2. f5 lets in gxf5.   And Rxc2 doesn't prevent the mate:  white doesnt have to take the rook.   As you do more of these you will find that 1/ most alternative solutions have been  answered before and 2/ given solutions are very very rarely wrong .  Good luck and enjoy.
