Then just Qxe7#       Ok I will answer all of these:   1) Re3#   2) Qxe7#   3) Qf4#   4) Qf5#   5) Qf5#   6) Qf5# (for some reason, I spent a lot of time on this one because I thought

Hi,   After B e4 if Black replies :   k x B what is the counter   k d6 what is the counter   e7 e6 what is the counter   b d6 what is the counter   r d6 what is the counter   r d7 what i

White moves to mate in two !     What is the first move ?

There is no mate on f6. The black pawn is defending f6. Taking the e7 pawn isn't mate either.

 

EDIT: I assume you meant Qe6+. Black can just take the queen with the king.

 

Thank you for pointing that out. +1

 

It shows how long since I last played, I even got the direction of play wrong.

 

I had that pesky pawn going for queen.

You should play some. Maybe with me if you like. I opened a chess thread not so long ago, but not a single soul responded, so I'm surprised to see this kind of puzzle be popular.

 

Anyways, I checked the puzzle with an egine because I suspected it wasn't a mate in two (no offense to the OP, but you can't know someone's chess level on a forum where they don't respond to chess threads lol). It's actually not straightforward at all. There is a lot of possible tactics involved because there are so many variations to calculate. You would think that any mate in two puzzle would be piss easy, but nope.

I don't know what is going on here, but this is the third time I have posted this.

 

1) Rook to e3 check

 

2) If bishop (or knight) to e4 then

 

3) Queen to f6 mate.

 

Hi

 

R e3 + if answered by b e4+ it results in a check to the White king and therefore no Q move by White can follow ! I mean the next White move can not be of Queen !

N X R

 

N x r will be answered ny n x R

 

That means if White Knight removes Black rook Black answers with Black knight removing White Rook.

 

What is next by White ?

Nope. Think checkmate in TWO. You have to calculate till mate, otherwise it's just a guess.

As I said, the move isn't obvious at all.

 

Don't give up !

What do you find unclear there? If knight takes the rook on d4, then the black knight will take white's rook on d3 and there is no mate next move.

Sorry. I was editing my answer and something came up. I don't believe there is a solution. Good puzzle if there is one...
