  • #121

    Creative underpromotion to avoid draw.

    good one indeed.

  • #123

    why not King takes pawn, Black forced to b8, then promote to queen for mate?

  • #124

    Good Knight!

    Because Black could then move to a7 and then that would be a mate in 3 rather than a mate in 2.

    promoted queen to b6 also works in 2

    Right?! 

     

    1. Qb5      Ka8
    2. d8=Q+   Ka7
    You can now get a mate in 3 (3. Qdb8#), but it was a mate in 2 problem.

    wasn't my favorite: You could have promoted your pawn to either a queen, knight or rook.
