    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

    2. Qd7#

    Because black won't play Kd8, he'll play Ne7.  Black is still losing but the imminent forced mate is gone.

    Why not play Nc7 as the first move for the discovery double check and the rook and king fork?
