    my theory works only if the king goes to d3 first then checkmate with rook on h3

    if your knight checks on c5 and to the king to d3 it works that way

    I found two ways to stalemate on the first puzzle. But that doesn't help.
    Actually there is 3 ways.

    These are too hard for mate in two. They must be more exuma type problems with funny arithmetic.
