Classic Mate in One

  • #1

    This is a joke problem from Leonid Kubbel.  The position is perfectly legal. Good luck trying to find the only mate in one in this position!

     

    A lot of moves seem like mate, but look carefully and you will see why not.

    What about d8 and promote to queen?  Looks like a win to me.
