if white moves rook to c2; then black would take it with knight.
That's right man23chess. That puzzle is STUPID.
jonnyearth if knight takes rook on c2 then bishop to f5 mate
if I was playing black, when rook moved to c2 I would have taken it with my knight. Even if I made the same move with the knight to g4, when the rook came over to h2 I would have had another opportunity to take it with my knight rather than taking the pawn with the king
1. If 1... Nxc2?? then 2. Bg2#.
2. If 2... Nxh2?? then 3. Bg2#.
A good puzzle, a bit difficult for a beginner like me. I needed help for the two first movements , but after that i was able to solve the puzzle by myself . Thanks for the explanation about the knight on e3 ;)
If Bf5+ Black can postpone to mate in 7:
So 1. Rc2+ is the fastest mate.
Very good puzzle. Got the first and second move correct, but needed help on the third.
