    A new Blog. 🙂

    The problem has not been 100% sorted but I have found a work around.

    It kicks off with a White to play and mate in 14 moves.


    The added bit is you must mate with a Rook
    and you not allowed to move your Rooks.
    (Solution on the Blog but try it.)

    Yet another silly trophy for Magnus this time Tata Steele 2016

    A plug for my latest book. (I give you a free trap.)

    3 Games featuring the Urosov Gambit.

    And we close with RHP Ideas in Action.

    It's not possible if you can't move your rooks - you can't walk into a mate!?

    HI BoardReader,

    It can be done - the solution is on the blog - but stop and think about it.
    (there is also a hint on the blog.)

    GP gives a hint at the beginning of the blog.

    "get the Black King into such a position where by using a Knight
    you block one of the Rook files so it can give a discovered checkmate."
