    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

  • #168

    @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.

    How are people still getting it wrong 3 months after the answer was given?

  • #179

    perhaps they don't want to go looking for the answer before attacking it themselves?

    You are correct DalaiLuke.

    They want to check if their answer is correct without looking first on the solution.

    Anyway, Scottrf had solved this problem 3 months ago.
