# Asorski Original Chess Problem No. 54

• #1

No. 53 is an easy 2-mover.

I feature now another "easy" but this time a 3-mover problem.

Again this is an Asorski original chess puzzle.

Goodluck everyone and happy solving!

White mates in 3

• #2

Is it 1.Ra4

• #3

Is it 1.Ra4

1. Ra4 Kd4!

• #4

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??

Yes, there is a mate in 3. I'll post the key in your homepage and check it with your engine.

man, id rather have real life problems to worry about than these. lolz, jk, hmmm tough one

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.

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

Yah. You are correct nate23. you have solved this problem.

CONGRATULATIONS!

This is the diagram with solution:

Thank you all for visiting this post: Adriandmen, Powerlevel_9001 and nate23.

You may post your comment on the puzzle, good or bad it's welcome.

Comp says no mate in 3.

• #10

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!

Nooooooooooooo..........

Failed again!

• #15

Adriandmen, BigDoggProblem, and nate23 you are all correct.

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??

• #16

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.
