    It's sad to see that the first comment ON A CHESS PUZZLE is religious garbage.  I'm fairly sure that if a comment promoting atheism were first (which it wouldn't be, as atheists would have the common sense to not bring politics/religion into a chess puzzle) that it would be deleted after heavy backlash.  Instead, the first comment is a biblical verse that has no relevance to the puzzle and is considered appropriate and not spam.


    I so agree with this even though i believe in a religion i think you shouldn't preech/oppose your views on others and especially when it isn't relevant!

    Don't know what faial2000 in post #190 is trying to demonstrate above but I think the solution is meant to be mate in three as follows:-

    As for his second diagram ..... ?

    don't understand why whites black bishop did not take the black queen on the first move. or why white's queen moved to a spot that left it hanging for black's bishop.

    Because that solution in the diagram (#186) by faial2000 is a piece of nonsense? The efficient solution is mate in 3 moves! ....

    1. Rh8+ Kxh8 2. Qh6+ Kg8 3. Qg7#
