I'm sorry, but that is not checkmate.

How about Qd2 as the first move? the only options for black are Kc4, followed by Qa2, or Rd2, followed by Ne3

• #11

close but there's Nd4 there

• #12

Completely forgot that. Geez...

• #13

So, starting with Qc2. If he does Nd4, finish with c4.

• #14

1. Q-d2    N-d4  2. N-e3#

1. Q-d2    K-c4   2. Q-a1#

1. Q-d2    c4      2. N-e3#     Not sure, but all look good.

Nd4 removes the pin so Ne3 Rxe3

After Qc2, can't black just push the pawn to c4, protecting the rook?

• #18

Qh1+ leaves him only two options, both of which are mate in one.  He can either block with the rook:

Qh1+, Rf6, Ne6#

or he can move the king to c4

Qh1+, Kc4, Bf7#

This sound right to you guys?

I believe 1. Qc2 is the soltuion!

After Kc4, Bf7+ is not mate. Black can still block with d5.
