Mate in 2

  • #1

    This mate wont really work on more experienced chess players in two moves but it worked for me. The two free bishops can be tempting.

  • #2

    Easy. What if the king moves to kh1 instead?

  • #3

    It would take a couple more moves to checkmate, thats why i said it won't work on more expreinced people.

    Hopefully this helps? You were absoulutely right yeres30. Not exactly couple of moves though; correct me if i made a mistake somewhere. :O

    M786, there are a few problems with your analysis. On the main line you show, there's no need to bring the Knight into play; you have a mate Qxp#(g2) on black's move 41. Plus, the bishop check on one of your other lines would be met by 41. QxB.

    Still not a bad puzzle - the Bf1 bishop move is not obvious, and does put some pressure on the white king.

    And I think there's a forced mate in four. 38. . .Bf2+ 39. Kh1 Qc1+ 40. Kh2 Qg1+ 41. Kh3 Qh1#

    Whoops, 39. Kh2 stops that . . .

  • #7

    What's stopping white from playing Qh3 or Qf3 at anytime during that sequence?

  • #8

    @ randon-d and daxelson:

    My mistake, nothing wrong with qh3, and thats why you need to bring in the knight to checkmate.

    Oh nice one, didn't exactly see that.

  • #10

    whites response to bf1 is kh2. it delays the inevitable due to blacks preponderance in material.
