    This is a position i had in one of my games. I thought it was interesting. It's probably easy to find forced mate but I thought I would share it. Post forced mate positions of your own if you want.

    Find forced mate. Black to move.

    I refreshed this to check no-one had got in before me, beaten by a minute then.

    Having two queens isn't always too useful though. Was two up recently and lost (although I think by that point the game had been lost).

    Hmm...Black's R and Q are hanging. If Black's last move was ...c1Q, it was a major blunder.

    Qxg6 actually (his queen), although the earlier c1=Q was a blunder. Thought his attack would not prove decisive enough.

    Ahh, I see. That makes more sense. Too bad you didn't get time for ....f4, shutting in that Bg3.

    not possible (white would have had to have had at least 10 pawns, and there is no way black could have got in that position without being mated)🙂😉😉😏🙄😴😵
