  • #61

    difficult

  • #62

    6. 0-0?????? Be2+ and Rh2 check mate its the correct answer

  • #63

    bishop can make it

  • #64

    Tough one and fun

  • #65

    0-0 at the end isn't the only winning combination - Rh2 or Rg1, or Bf1 or Kf1 followed by Ne5/h2# also wins.

  • #66

  • #67

    ok, no seen black Bishop at first time in 6-th moves

  • #68

    after Nf6 black will take your knight with the pawn...

    great one...it was fun

  • #75

    Different.  Cool

  • #76

    Yes to all the people saying there's a quicker mate with Nxf6+ Q/Rxf6 Qxh7+ etc, you're forgetting that if black just plays ...gxf6 instead, the queen now guards h7 and there is no mate.

  • #77

    pretty wild!

  • #78

    This is nonsense! there is a 2 move solution here. Knight to f6, doesnt matter what black does to get out of check, Qxh7. Boom.

    Took alittle longer than usual, good for the brain, excellent puzzle.
