    What about 5. Qa6#?

  • #223

    The chess problem below is one by Bruce Pandolfini:

  • #224

  • #225

    Mate in 12:

  • #226
  • #227

  • #228

    Black's lucky white didn't see 17. Qe8# in GSHAPIROY's game

     

    btw, loved the last puzzle.

    Nope.  5...Qxa6.

    Nice puzzles. Rook promotion also shold work...

    Get this one:

  • #234

    It's worth noting 6...Qh4 is a horrific blunder.  Simply Nxh4 wins the bishop after Bxe2, Bxe2.

    Correct me if I'm wrong....and I probably am (Or someone else pointed this out in the comments and I lazily skipped it) Wouldn't this be mate in two?
    1.Nd6....Kc7
    2.Qb7#

    Please correct me if I'm wrong. (And I probably am)

      Can be blocked with Qa6.

    mate with pawn = swag ;)

    Pawns are, like, the very least likely piece to mate with.

    OrangeMouse, your first puzzle on pg. 6 is bad, instead of 30. ... Rb7, why not 30. ... Qe1#?

    very simple
