I got it! That was quite difficult. Very rewarding to figure out though. Thanks!
doduobird123, after Nf6+ gxf6 there's no mate.
Yes, TomOhio, 1.Rd5 is wrong, but the idea of your answer is right. If you know what I mean, this puzzle should be a lot more easy.
Yes... I do know what you mean... but I wouldn't have, had I not discovered the idea of Rd5 and then subsequently seeing why it wasn't right. It is a clever conception in the puzzle that provided an "aha!" moment for me. It did take me a while to get from Rd5 to the real answer, though. I think this puzzle has actually made me a better player. Thanks again for posting it.
Doduobird123 you are incorrect, that is not the correct answer. It is a "mate" in 2" puzzle.
Also if you play nf6 then black can capture with the pawn. Leaving his bishop to take your nf2
Keep looking! It's tricky! Haha it will take more then 5 minutes.
Seven1348 is also incorrect. There is no rook sacrifice.
think i got it
Falling up: That's not the only possible answer from Black. There's also g5.
well, g5 Nxh6# right?
good puzzle adriandmen.u r the best chess composer in the world
can u solve it adriandmen.
there's a mate in one though...
It looks like a mate in one unless the pawns are going the other way.
anupralhad: Your puzzles don't work. Will not accept a move.
Well, it seems that the puzzle is solved by FallingUp, but also solved by: Didiz1016, Hockeymanchess. Congratulations to all the solvers, and thank you all for posting on this topic. Here is a diagram with the solution:
Here is the answer of your first puzzle, Anupralhad:
And your second puzzle: 1.Rd3! zz.
The thing I liked about this puzzle is that the correct first move would have still required some analysis by the opponent before resigning. There's multiple possible responses, all of which have a (different) mating move following. It would have been an excruciating few moments while he contemplated "... if I do this... then he can do THAT" as he eliminated his chances one by one. Most of the mate-in-2 puzzle are obvious after the finding the winning first move. This one wasn't that way.
the answer is mate in one if ir is white's move and the answer _____________
