    Did not think of castling.tried it after moving N three times,first thought was Rf1,but did not see move after black K could move to g2,other than rechecking with Rg1 and then black K could just go back to f3.Pretty sneaky,Thank's Chess.Com.good day chess heads. 1-0 chess.com,we will see what tommorow bring's

    wonderful

    LOL I like that, but admittedly was the last thing on my mind at this stage in the game.

    A common enough trick in chess puzzles & it caught me out again  Yell

    It exploits the prejudice most of us have that you can't get to such a late stage in a game & still be able to castle !

    Puzzles!  They're puzzles; not games!!  To solve them, you must think differently; not like you think playing a game!!!

    Fitting title. Tricky puzzle though; wasn't thinking of castling at all.

    A castle to checkmate. Clever setup.

    I love this. "Consider all possibilities"

  • #52

    castling really?? last thing 

  • #53

    Doesn't Rf1 also work?

  • #54

    good puzzle

  • #55

    little weird checkmate. Castling is generally for defense, but in this case we used it to checkmate.

  • #56

    If they say castling is an option, you will see the solution.  It's best to just assume that it's an option.

    well, you guys tricked me, I tried every move but castling, as it was unreal to me, that both pieces hadn`t moved yet...Tongue Out
