    1...Bg6 is the only way to meet the threat of 2. Rh3+.  The purpose of the move is to shield black's king from white's g7 rook (2. Rh3+ Kg5).

     I saw 4.Rh6# and played that, but it rejected me. Can't these puzzles have multiple solutions?

  • #208

    nice!

  • #209

    nice job

  • #210

    easy

  • #211

    Why couldn't it be Rh6# also and not just Rxh7#?  Someone please help me on this.  I will greatly appreciate it!!! :)

  • #212

    two rooks can move

    Rh6 is checkmate.  The puzzle can only give one solution.  Perhaps Rxh7 was chosen because it gains an extra pawn while checkmating.
