    Actually, there is mate in 2:

    h6+ / g7 Qh7++

    Nope - After 1 R - h6+,  1 ...  k x g7  uncovers a rook check on the white king which must be dealt with.


    Oh, right! I didn't look it.

    A beauty.

    The proper way of underpromotion/demotion!

  • #28

    Knoght promotion is the only move that gives check and therefore easy to spot.

     But what's the choice ?  3. ... Ke8   results in 4. Rxg8#


    Spent some time on what is not a complicated puzzle because, testing the first move, I promoted (without thinking) to a Queen & got 'Incorrect Move'. Then assumed that wasn't the first move & looked everywhere for an alternative: Dohhhh.....

    Anybody else do that ?
