This is a very nice puzzle. I solved it at the very first attemp. I was not entirely sure if I should start with the pawn, but the title gave the answer away! After that it was easy.
1st page...oops no to second again!!!
This one is difficult. The name of puzzle doesnt't help at all.
got a rook !!!
E comunque, sempre Forza Roma!
This is an interesting puzzle. The black rook can't go to a white square because the bishop can attack it with discovered check.
Also f8 is not available because of a discovered attack.
And b6 would lead to getting checkmated after double check then mate on a8 as it takes away the king's escape square.
So the only two available squares are f2 (chosen here) and f4. If the rook goes to f4 then Kxe3 and the rook has nowhere safe to go.
After Rf2 and Kxe3 the only black square available now is b2 but that is no good because of the later skewer.
Of course white has to win the end-game against all those pawns (and the bishop will get captured) but should prevail.
1. dxe5 Rf2+ 2. Kxe3 Rb2 3. Bd5+Ka7 4. Ra8+ Kb6 5. Rb8+ haha
