[b]Here is a mate with K & 2 Rooks v a King



Now I remove the White King and replace it with a White Knight



It's not mate anymore.

You leave the Black King on e5 and just using the two White Rooks
and a White Knight (no White King) place the Rooks and Knight on
the board so the Black King is in checkmate.

So start with this.



And put the 3 pieces (2 Rooks and a Knight) on the board so the
Black King is in checkmate.

Yiu do not move the pieces about, the Black King stays on e5
just simply add the three white pieces on the board so it's mate.

You have 5 minutes and please be honest, if you cannot find it
after 5 minutes then please say so.
You will be in some very good company if you don't.

All I require is a simply post.

Yes (and the time it took you).

No hints,fen positions or hidden messages, no comments. no questions,
I have made it very clear all I require is a one line answer.

The post should look like something like this:

Yes. 3 minutes.

or

No. after 5 minutes.

If you have seen it before please do not post.

Thank you and please as many as you can try it.

You deserve a prize for not thinking of illegal positions. That must save a lot of time OTB. How I envy that. 🙂

To tell the truth, the thought didn't cross my mind. I'm just that slow, ha ha.

(btw, my position was illegal, too)

P.S. Uh oh, greenpawn said "no comments" . I guess we're in trouble now. 😵
