    after 3. Re1; why can't Queen take the rook? may be i am missing something; but that looks like a Checkmate.

    Chesscrazy127, that's a good example of a smothered mate, but isn't checkmate as white can play 2.Kxa2 and avoid the mate.

    if 2. Kxa2 then 2... Ra7#

    Hello everyone! I would like to share with you a chess puzzle from bruce pandolfini's book. Here it is:

    White to move and win.

    Of course promoting to a Queen or Rook leads to a draw!

    Solution next Sunday. June 10, 2012.

    there is more to this puzzle but the editor would not let me add it so this is all  I could put...

    This is a mate in 2. It's just one of my ideas.

    Hey chessgm8. Nice idea but flawed.

    1.Nc5 can be countered by 1...c6!, 1...Nc6!, 1...Rd1!, 1...Kd8! and 1...Kb8! preventing mate in 2 and winning easily for black. Also after 1.Nc5 Nd6 2.Rh8+ Ne8 3.Rxe8 is mate in 3.
