     very nice one and easy

    Does rg8  lead to mate quicker 2-3 moves depending on what black does

    Black captures whites Queen, White captures Blacks rook for check, Black blocks check with Queen, white captures Queen with rook, Black captures rook with King...no mate, only a trade of pieces.

    So I tried to reply to your messages that I just read and you blocked me from replying. I had fun anyway, someday you will look inward and thank me.

    Thank you for what?  All you've done is proven you can't count, since you think mate-in-21 is the same kind of "wiped out" as mate-in-4.

    There's a point in blocking people, when you realize they will hold on to their stubbornness and can't be reasoned with any longer.  I've moved on, so should you.

    My 10 yr old plays chess and he can tell that mate-in-4 is better than mate-in-21.

    Someday you will thank me cause I taught you how to count.

    You are so right, I am deserving of your condescension and thank you for the math lesson.

    ZacWilson already pointed out why Rg8 doesn't work.  Read #174

    1. Qxc6

    2. Qxa8

    or

    2. Qxe8

    This would lead to a much faster mate if I'm not mistaken. I might be. I'm not that great at chess.

    Read our ongoing argument throughout the thread.  You'll get your mate, but it won't be a faster one, it will be a slower one.  Some people have difficulty with this concept.

    ahha, good one.

  • #176

    Great.Please be relevant, helpful & nice!

  • #177

    very nice puzzle.

  • #178

    The black rook is sucked off the 8 rank and the white rook punch the king on a back rank mate... who said chess is not a violent game?!

  • #179

    Rook g8 works as well.
