    Whose King is In Danger . Puzzle#1

  • #2

    Not even attempting it because I don't know if black is on the bottom or top, and that pawn on f8/c1 is impossible.

  • #3

    2 black square bishops for black... why would you get a bishop instead of a queen with your promoted pawn?

    Which Promoted Pawn??

  • #7

    the only way black could have 2 bishops on the same color is to promote a pawn.

    I like 2. Ra7# better.

    The puzzle is incorrect because of these reasons:

    1. The position is illogical. There is no way you would ever see such a position in a real game. Look at the block of pawns and pieces (king included) in the upper right of the diagram. I don't know any player with a healthy mind that would purposely trap the king and his rook behind his own pawns, that would rather be useful for promotion. Moreover, there are two black bishops. I don't know ANY case where it is better to promote a pawn to a bishop, rather than a queen. There are cases where it is better to promote to a rook (to avoid stalemate) or a knight (usually for a fork or a smother mate), but I can't seem to comprehend a situation where it is better to have a bishop, rather than a queen. The position is outright stupid and too artificial. Therefore the puzzle has no real value, since it cannot be applied to a similar position (because such a position will most likely NOT occur in your games).

    2. The puzzle has more than one solution. While 1. Bf1+ b5 2. cxb6# is a correct mate, there is another possibility: 1. Bf1+ b5 2. Ra7#

    These two flaws in the puzzle makes it a bad puzzle.

    Pawan Sharma's puzzle : Obviously black is mated in two ways. White king is safe.
