    No need. The host must continously checked the comment and quote it instantly and post it together with his reply.

    Look at post No. 82 by Qweeni2 of France, I quoted her (#85) saying the position has no mate in 2. She deleted her comment when Scottrf published the solution!

    Well Asorski. I think this is your highlight of all problems!! . Good Job. Keep the mindcrackers coming.

    Adriandmen, I'm so happy about the turn-out of this forum!

    In a span of 2 days more than 160 comments were posted and close to 50 people shared their thoughts. Even though the puzzle was through, visitors continue to post their solution thinking it's so easy but failed.

    Many are amazed by this puzzle (including me) and my mind is flooded with more requests. I should start making another MindCracker immediately!Cool

    Really? Even me, the maker of that cracker still shocked by that amazing puzzle! Again, hail to the great D.T. Brock who made the original version.

    I don't understand why the Rook MUST move to e1 ... what is wrong with e2 or e3?

    When the pawn captures there's no double check.

    This fantastic chess puzzle continues to shocked people...Lincolm and I admitted that it's simply amazing. It blows people's mind!

    1. Re2? fxe2!

    1. Re3? fxe3!

    Re5 is illegal. It has already been solved anyway.

    Kxc4. Solution already provided

  • #171

    @Cnacnel, you're right, Re5# is illegal since the previous move puts the white king in check.

    @Scottrf, Kxc4 would have been impossible because the Rook is guarded by a white bishop.

    Thanks guys, I'll look at the previous solution.

    First I move the Queen from d1 to f3, then the Rook from e4 to d4.
