Hi everyone, i was reading in my local newspaper recently, an article on the 1993 Kasparov vs Short match. In the article, it also stated that there are eight diffrent ways to get checkmate in two moves. Could anyone confirm if thats true, because i found it hard to believe.

An article about a Kasparov - Short match that,somehow,manages to mention the number of ways to mate in 2 from the starting position.
Hmm,am I the only one who wonders about that?

It's not that I didn't believe it.It's that I couldn't understand why anyone would slip that info into a report of such a match.What's the relevancy,eh?
But you could be right.
And perhaps more words = bigger paycheck
