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.

The proper way of underpromotion/demotion!

Pavrey

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 ?

Underpromotion!
