The puzzle is not good
Black colleagues can continue to play a better position and motion
It is not compulsory.

Why not just simply 1. Kf7, 2. Rf8# ????????????


Because if white moves his king first, the black f-pawn will simply capture the white rook, and white is doomed.


Good grief! How did I miss that?

to much for me,you asked for harder puzzles,with pawn up grade block not taken as first move,i was lost,i have never played for draw,it is mate or rezign,i can see black takes rook and white king has no move,but being in blacks position,was mating not an option?i think puzzle was very hard,so many what ifs in my mind,so many moves,for first move,which i tried to move to one rank with rook,try again,totally lost,its an uncomfortable feeling,allmost how you feel being one move from being mated with no move to stop it,THANKS CHESS.COM. I WONDER IF ANYONE COULD HAVE SOLVED YOUR PUZZLE TODAY!now to read what all you chess heads had to say.have a good day!!!!!!!

are all these moves forced?


 the only forced moves were when white checked black,or vica versa,which i do not even remember if black checked white,since i just started hitting help,after 2 try agains,i think its safe to say that moves were not forced
