Problem ID: 0037294
Nice rook moves for a masterful mate in two.
Not feeling lucky guartas, seemed to me the best move.
I'm shocked that only 37.8 percent of the people who tried this passed!
yeah, another trick problem with multiple solutions. These are quite common here on chess.com
im annoyed with these problems, there should be one clear solution. Or at least give some points for alternatives.
What is this other solution you guys are seeing?
1..Rc1+ 2.Ka2 Ra1# or 2..Nc3+ Bxc3 3.Ra1#. You think that's worth editing or deleting the problem?
Did you make a mistake? Ra1 isn't possible in your second line.
Tmb, notice that the second line is starting at 2.
He is interjecting a pointless knight check before delivering Ra1#
Pass rate 38.7
Yes! I am one of the 38.7% that passed the problem
Nc3+ allows the bishop to capture. I see only one solution to the problem. If anyone sees others, feel free to post!
enemy behind the gates!
Surprising it got up to 1687
