    Okay, I got it all but the last move. I tried to go to b1. Can someone tell me why the rook belongs on b3?

    because of Qh8 stopping Ra1#, on b3 the c-pawn blocks Q access to a3.

    Why move the king in move 3? Pawn would be better

  • #26
    And what if black responds to Rb6 with Qa4? I don't see a forced Checkmate after that.

    Right off, I saw the 1. Ra8 Kxa8 2. Ra6 would be mate if the Queen wasn't guarding a6. I also noted that the Queen couldn't chess black's King on move. I spent all my alloted time tying to find some diversion to stop the Queen from guarding that square, and never did find the solution.

    Is it too late to take up checkers?
