2/29/2012 - Mate in 3

Choique

Muy lindo, es un rompecabezas agradable

I tired rook promotion at first to check if it is rejected and it was rejected! Only queen promotion is allowed here! (Although both are the same...)

 2.exd8Q+, Kf7

3.Qf8#


 I think what's next is 2. e8Q# , not exd8Q+ which is why Nd8 is not under consideration as a solution (i.e. it leads to mate in less moves).

e8=R+ works also

idiots it is NOT WRONG when i promote the pawn to a ROOK 


 Yeah, I wanted to promote to rook.  I just like mating with the lowest possible ranking piece.  This puzz was almost Sunday quality, right out of Bobby Fischer Teaches Chess.  That book was page after page of Queen/rook column mates, with the king usually conveniently trapped in his castle.

Study the board,

find the quickest, most sure fire way of trashing the useless white Queen,

- and you can be certain, a mate will pop up.


Chess, Chess.com style.

Defend 2. e8=R+ then as black.

What's that? You can't? You're still forced to take the rook?

Try again next time.
