    I've been calculating for 30 minutes and I don't think there is a mate in 3. Are you sure this puzzle has a mate in 3??

    We all have real-life problems Powerlevel_9001. "Solving easy chess problems will temporarily ease the pain but solving a tough one will add to your burden." I guess this is easy. I'm wrong. I think it's a medium puzzle.

    Please keep on solving.Laughing

    Is it Rf4 Kxf4 Ra4 followed by Bd2# or Bd6# depending on which rook moves?

    Comp says no mate in 3.

    I have found a refutation, but a trophy would be nice anyway for finding the composers idea :)

  • #11

    After 2. Ra4, 2... Rc3! or 2... Rc5!

     Adriandmen, BigDoggProblem, and nate23 you are all correct.Frown

    I should not have post this puzzle in the first place.

    I think a White Knight on g4 and put the other Rook on f5 will help.


    What do you think??

    This is my last puzzle.I guess I need to take a vacation. I need to unwind and to relax to regain my composure.

    Again my sincere apology to all.

    With the new puzzle, both 1. Rxe3, 1. Rxe5, and 1. Bc3 lead to a mate in 3.

    So i have to take back the ROok not on f3 but on f1? And put the a-Rook somewhere else like this one? Please check it again, Asorski will not be available in the coming days.

    Perhaps putting two pawns( a pawn on d3, and a pawn on d5), would lead to a mate in 3.
