    Mate in 3 is tough so I thought a mate in 2 thread would be nice.

    Theres a free rook to take. Forget about mating!

    Really? I think you would give up a queen and two rooks for a slight increase in position...damn positional play;p

    Nah, it's better to take his king than only a petty rook. The king is more valuable.

    Heinzkat, try that mate in 3 if you dare, that problem can drive a man insane

    I agree this one was pretty obvious due to the check.
