works only if black takes back with the king and not the pawn which would be the better move.

The pawn mate

3 ... Kg6 4 f5#

would have been much more aesthetically pleasing.  

Thepkit

Not hard

james_at_chess

What happens if rook takes h6 and then pawn takes rook? Don't the chances look better for black?

albrigha

Would wouldn't black take the rook with the pawn instead?

 I'm still learning by trial and errors...lots of errors. This was good for seeing through the play to the end result!

Nice puzzle but first page.

nice mate

Genghis_McCann

I have to work more on calculation. I got the checkmate if the king took the rook, but couldn't work out what would happen if the pawn took the rook. Nevertheless, that's further forward than I would have been a year ago.

Oh well....

markae

wow, been a while since the last Rsac. nothing's as fun as making the king go for a short walk.

jarive
