Rd1+ Ke5Ng6+ Ke6 or f5Bd7++
The rook on the d file moves to any square on that file except the fourth --> black king is in check by the white bishop.1. .. Ke5 (only move)2. Nd3+ Kf5 (only move)3. Bd7#
I remember this one- from a few months back. A very nice puzzle. I remember I found the first move pretty quickly, but the second move is the one that stumped me for a while.
Ok I'm dumb can't find 3 but checkmate in 4 I can
Rd8. Then Ng6 qnd mates with the bishop on d5
1. Kf6Now black has different choices, but cannot avoid being mated:if black moves the f pawn: 1. ... f3 2. Rd3+ Kf4 3. Rd4++if black doesn't move the f pawn it is mated by 2. Rd3++ unless it has brought the Knight or the Queen in position to take the Bishop on c6 (by moving Na5, Qa4, Qc4 or Nd8), in which case 2. Rd3+ Q(N)c6 3. f3++
1. Kf6 f3 (if e8/Q, Rxe8#)2. Rd3+ Kf43. Rd4#Mark
Rook - D1King - E5Knight- F3King - E6 or F5Bishop- D7 Mate!Sorry, I'm not used to writing out chess moves, so my notation isn't proper. Nice Puzzle!
Nice puzzle! Cute! Thanks!
None of these are correct.
1 Rf1! (threat 2 f3+ and 3 Ng2#):a) 1 - f3 2 Rg1 and 3 Rg4#b) 1 - e1NBRQ 2 Rxe1+ Qe2 3 Rxe2#c) 1 - exf1NBRQ 2 Nf3! (threat 3 Re5# or 3 Rg5#) Kxf3 3 Rd2#
1. Rf1. e*f1 (q)2. Nf3 threating R any mate, or Re5/d4 mate with double check if bishop is attacked by black 2. ... K*f33. Rd2++
First, let's dispose of 1.Rd1:1. Rd1 Ke52. Nf3 Ke6Here, even Kf5 defeats the purpose which is to mate in 3 moves, not 4 or 5 moves:3. Rg6 Ke7 and black will get mated in another 2 moves, but the problem is mate in 3. No better is the knight check from g6 at move 2:2. Ng6 Kf5 (Ke6 3.Bd7#)And there is no mate in 3 here either.Now, some suggested cutting the black king off with a move like 1.Kf6, but this is defeated instantly by black pushing the b-pawn preparing to take the bishop with check if white moves the rook anywhere other than d6:1. Kf6 b52. Rd6 Qc6 and now I don't even see a mate here in less than 6 moves.
1. Rf1 exf1X 2. Nf3 and mate by 3. Re5/Rg5/Rd2
Hi, I remember this coz: 1. I could not find the first move 2. GM Vachier-Lagrave solved it in 1 minute.!!1.Rf1!!
Very tough1. Rf1 (threat f3+ - Ng2 ++)1. ... e8f1(q)2. Nf3 (threat R along 5th, especially Re5)2. ... K*f33. Rd2++@gregsalterjhb
