Onlymate

  • #1

    I don't know if there is already name for this, but I like to call this type of puzzle an "onlymate": the only legal move delivers mate!

    The challenge is not in the puzzle itself, but in the construction thereof. Can you create an onlymate?

    But that's flawed!!! it's check but not check mate, the rook can take the bishop and there's a few pices able to block the bishop!!

    No, it's a double check.

    At first, I didn't understand your Frampits vs Totem puzzle as I thought, "It must be black's move and he can go ...Kh7 etc,  Edit: or ...RxBe3 mate or ...QxBe3.  Then I understood.

    Clever.  Hard to believe it is from a game.
