Judit Polgár announces MATE IN 4! Can you solve it?
I am seeing a mate in 3 -
1.Rf8+ Bxf82.d6+ Be63.Bxe6#
What am I missing?
EDIT:Oh, Now I see:2. ... Qd53. Bxd5+ THEN3. ... Be64. Bxe6#
More straight forward than the title implies.
Loved the puzzle posted by 14 hours ago · in comment · #112 by sriramu123
Under-promotion to a sacrificial piece to avoid stalemate and enable checkmate!!!
The pawn can't capture the rook because it is pinned by the bishop
Orange_Mouse posts 2 ridiculous "solutions" to two "puzzles" in comment #138. Why?
The first "puzzle" should be a mate in 1 by black, and black makes the wrong move.
The second is a game opening by the two worst players I can imagine.
Don't you people get bored by always commenting 'too easy' and 'first page'? Every single puzzle they put, there is innevitably someone who wants to show just how unchallenged by the puzzle they are. Yeah, yeah, we know you're smart and an exceptionally awesome chess player, kudos to you, now talk more chess and less how dumb the others (apparently people who choose the puzzles) are.
This was an extremely brain-building puzzle.
I think there is an alternate solution in which 2.Rxg6+ followed by Qh6 is mate however black recaptures.
If 2. Rxg6+ then 2...Kxg6 3. Qh6+ Kf5.
