Right - but 1...Be4 you'll have as well with other moves along the 3rd rank (except 1 Rd3 or of course not 1 Rh3)! Wink

In the worst case you'll have to mate with bishop and knight! Smile

That takes some thought & if I'd given it some more, I might have solved it on my first attempt !

1.Rd3 has a double purpose - to clear the f3 square & block the bishop's attack on g6 so that the knight can mate on either of those two squares.

Moving the rook to any other square allows 1...Be4 & the possibility that the black king is going to escape from it's prison on h4. Sure, Black's position is hopeless here but 1.Rd3 is the only move that gives forced mate in so few moves.

Very nice puzzle     Cool

Waste............

         If we bring the knight to ng6 its checkmate.Why do we have to make a whole story of it...................surely waste I suppose.

Very interesting...

Read post #45. There everything is explained! Laughing

1 Rd3 blocks the bishop (prevents 1...Be4) and threatens 2 Ng6# and 2 Nf3#!

1...Rf2+ is forced. The end is known ...

Bonne journée; good day.

Once more 1 Ng6+? Bxg6! Here White lost his knight for nothing!

I think that first page is a racially divisive and morally offensive statement, and should be banned on the website

very interesting puzzle

I wonder if the only reason people post 'easy!' after a chess puzzle is because of some insecurity? I fail to see any other reason tbh.

Nice puzzle.
