3 Knights

  • #1

    White to play and mate in 4 moves without moving any piece twice .

     

  • #2

    last move is Nf8# = Ng5#

  • #3

    nice

  • #4

    Of course not because any player will promote the pawn to queen , but if a player is sure that he can win with 3 knights then why not ?

    Any way the puzzle is only for fun !

    There's at least one other solution:

    1. Kf7 Kh7 2. Nf5 Kh8 3. Ng6+ Kh7 4. Ng5#

    AIUI there has been at least one master-level game that finished K+3N v K+N, presumably because White had to promote the pawn or lose it, and would have suffered a fork if he promoted to Queen. And since K+2N can't force mate, it's possibly useful to look at K+3N, though I don't know OTTOMH how that compares in difficulty with K+B+N. Cool
