Not a good puzzle since black can play any K move on move 3 and win.
How would he win--but that's the whole purpose! He's up a rook... and white has to stop a checkmate!
It should end after 2...Kxf8 when black has won the R and exact play is no longer needed to win.
I wanted to show what would happen...
Yes, but then the user is told they are wrong for playing moves like 3...Kg7 when there is nothing wrong with that move.
That's the problem with the way chess.com inserts these things.
No, that's on you. Chess.com does not force you to add extra moves at the end. You could have added a comment after 2...Kxf8 to show the idea of taking g2.
7. f8/R# INCORRECT! TRY AGAIN 7. f8/Q# YOU HAVE SOLVED THIS PROBLEM
That was from a chess.com daily puzzle. Rook promotion had worked just as well as queen, and they said it was incorrect.
I loved my game.
