    Hello everyone! I would like to share with you my original 2-move chess composition containing pin and counter-pin!

    Here it is: White to move mate in 2!

    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.

    I saw this in a game, I think Nicholas Rossolimo was white. I was impressed.

    HARD.

    Nice little puzzle, I'd say it's quite hard, but not too hard.

    I hope this is a good problem :) I tried my best ;D

    Black to move, difficulty is.. medium? 

    Btw... the king moves to h8 because if it moves to g7, then the rook can move to h4 and push the pawn after black queens, gaining tempo and a winning advantage

    I just finished this one recently, Black can win a queen, or mate in 4+ moves depending on how unsportsmanlike White is :P

    Also, check the move list after you solve it.

    If after Nd4+, Ka3, then Nb5+ fork for the Queen without material loss.  So the best move for white is to take the knight on d4 since the Queen will be lost on the next move no matter what white decides to play.
