A wise man is brought before the King to be punished.The King says, "You must give me a statement. If it is true, you will killed by lions. If it is false, you will be killed by snakes"But in the end, the King has to let the man go.What was the wise man's statement?
Have a nice day!
This statement is false. It is therefore neither true or false, therefore the king must let him go.
This puzzle is wrong. Why would one go for mate in 3 when there is an obvious mate in 2 moves.. :-/
1. Nxc5+ Kd8
Because black won't play Kd8, he'll play Ne7. Black is still losing but the imminent forced mate is gone.
"I will be killed by snakes."
nice and straightforward mate with forced moves only
7nilac: Is it, "I will be killed by snakes." ?Please be relevant, helpful & nice!
Why not play Nc7 as the first move for the discovery double check and the rook and king fork?
Nc7+, Kd8, Re8+, Kd7 and no mate in 3
