Tricky one! I was trying every position in which I could force the king to move out....took a while before I thought to castle. Supposedly though the only way you're about to get this setup is if you played both sides...or just put down the pieces for a puzzle. But it was a very fun puzzle nonetheless :)
Seen this before... Unfair. =/
Have to say, I didn't get the solutiion as I did not and would never have assumed that a game could reach this point without the castling pieces having been moved-particularly since white's king is completely unprotected. Unrealistic and a waste of time
this puzzle is a troll
Same exact thing happened to me once
can not )))
that was mean :(
clearly reached from the bongcloud opening
Castling is always allowed in a puzzle, unless something in the position indicates there is no way the player can castle, (like: the king must have moved before etc.) This is not the case here.Please don't call the puzzle stupid if you don't understand it yourself
Never seen a castling mate so late in the game...
I should have remembered this kind of "think outside the box" puzzle. The box for me is: at this point in a real game castleing is not going to be an option
I always leave my king and rook in their original positions to retain the option for this mating attack.
I moved the rook..wrong!
its imposible to get to this position in a real game without moved your king or rook
