Kf7!hi Susan. nice template update. can i also suggest you give the answers to the puzzles on the comments. you dont have to give them right away. just do it before posting the new puzzle of the day.
It's a mirror solution!1.Kf8! Kh6 2.Nf7mate1.Kf8! Kh4 2.Nf3 mateKamalakanta
Kf7 Kh4Nf3#Or Kf7 Kh6Qg6#
1. Kf7 Kh4 2. Nf3#1. Kf7 Kh6 2. Qg6#
1.h4 (If 1...fxg5 2.Qxg5#)(If 1...Kxh4 2.Nf3#)(If 1...Kh6 2.Qh7#)
1. Rf71. … fxg52. Qh3#1. … Kh62. Qg6#1. … Kh42. Nf3#
Initial guess: Q stands excellently where it is, and probably black should be allowed to play fxg5, answered by a Q mate in h file when black has blocked escape field g5 with his own pawn. Sounds like a clever zugzwang idea.This encourages me to examine h3 and Kf7.But h3 destroys the exisiting plan Kh4 Nf3#, so h pawn should stay on h2.Then the natural try is:1. Kf7! (zugzwang)1. ... fxg5 2. Qh3# 1. ... Kh4 2. Nf3#1. ... Kh6 2. Qg6#
1. Kf71. ... Kh6 2. Qg6#1. ... Kh4 2. Nf3#1. ... fxg5 2. Qh3#
1.Kf7! to let 2.Nf3#, Qh3# or Qg6# happen.
Over the board, mate-in-two-shots are usually trivial. Compositions are somewhat more difficult.Of course, here you can pretty much guess that, because of aesthetic concerns, the solution involves letting the knight be captured. With that in mind...1- Kf7...If... Kh6, 2-Qg6#If... Kh4, 2- Nf3#And if... fxg5, 2-Qh3#
Kf7a) ... fxg5Qh3#b) ... Kh4Nf3#c) ... Kh6Qg6#
