Originally posted by pulernWhite to move, mate in 9.
Is it possible to set up a three piece position with;
a) White King + White Queen vs. Black King, so that forced mate is MORE than 8 moves?
b) White King + White Rook vs. Black King, so that forced mate is MORE than 15 moves?

The title of this thread made me think this thread was going to be about how to win with king and queen vs rook and king.
I usually just make oodles of checks and win the rook by accident.
I don`t think that works against computers but it works great in blitz vs earthlings.
