Fun Mate in 3

  • #1
    I missed this in game but caught it later in the analysis. Black to move!

    1... Nc6+ 2. Ka8 Qxa7 3. Bxa7 Rxa7#

  • #4

    nc6+, bxc6, qxb6+, ka8, qxa7# or rxa7#

  • #5

    The board is swapped the coordinates should be the opposite, anyway,

    Qxg3 fxg3 Nf3+ Kh1 Rxh2#

  • #6

    If Nf3+ first then white can play Kh1 and it isn't a mate in 3 right?

    No.  After 1.Nf3+ Kh1 then 2.Qxh2+ Bxh2 3.Rxh2#

    ok,  I think that either way works then

    If Nf3 can't white take with the pawn?

    look at my solution. Yes the board is flipped but I made my moves based on the coordinates of what the board showed

  • #12

    Nf3 is double check because of the bishop on b6

  • #13

    the queen sac is cooler

  • #14

    but if Nf3+, white can play Qxf3, so I don't think it is mate in 3

  • #15

    Found it. 1. Qxa7+ Bxa7 2.Nc6+ Ka8 3. Rxa7#

    Also, when inserting a chess position into the post, you can put on the checkmark "puzzle" and let us guess the moves.

    @SilverByte, what if White plays 2...bxc6

  • #17

    what is wrong with my solution lol? I'm pretty sure it is the answer...

  • #18

    Not that difficult. Still pretty interesting
