9/28/2012 - Mate in 3

  • #181

    nice, but I would go for crushing my opponent in the endgame, promoting some pawns, making sure of no stalemate, and play Bg5+ and win the Queen, instead of Qa5+.

    By the way, why not take the knight after knight d5+? I don't understand this move! :D

    This isn't a very subtle puzzle.

    I don't get it.  Doesn't the computer play black's moves?  If someone is checking the solution in the help mode and they don't understand either sides' moves in the solution, try to figure them out and/or read through the comments.  It can be very beneficial to one's chess success.  But to specifically answer your question, the puzzle only accepts one solution, even if there are multiple solutions.  Perhaps that shouldn't be the case.

    I agree 1...cxd5 looks like a much better idea for black, even though it is also a mate in three.  Perhaps even though this puzzle is titled "Mate in 3", it came from a real game in which black played 1...Kd8.
