White to move, right? I'm not seeing it. How do I cover the h8 square?
It's mate in two, I analyzed it
There's a mate in one if you think outside the box and its a legal chess move
only if you know blacks previous move was e5, but yes, that would do it.
No fair! If I had seen the prior move of e5, then yes dxe6 e.p. ++ by discovered check and mate by the bishop on g2 will do the trick!!
Kxh6, the knight loses its protection from the queen
Since the puzzle is given as a mate in one, there must be a solution somewhere. While en passant is conditional in the given position (Black could have played d7-d5 or could have played other moves instead), en passant seems to be the only possibility to land an immediate mate. It follows correspondingly that Black must have moved d7-d5 prior to that, but I know that it is a bit not fair in this way.
The phrase 'it's a legal chess move' makes things a bit too obvious.
Then the king can take the knight, genius.
It looks like some people write comments here without taking time to actually THINK!
Quite ironic how you missed that a refutation to Qf6 has been published earlier in the same page in posts #10 and 11.
