    White clearly has a draw by repetitive check, despite being down material. But does he have something else? White to play and win.

    Why don't you PM it to me? I seriously doubt that you have the answer.

    FEN from puzzle from ilywrin's profile. I have to see it.



    "(White to play and mate in 2 moves) If you cannot solve it without moving the pieces, then chess is probably not your game 🙂"

    Uh oh. I think I can get it in 3...

    That one is easy enough - I can't currently get the initial one.

    The obvious move is 1. Rb6+ however a quick check shows this leads to a mate in 3.

    Quicker is 1. Rb7 Bxb7 (only move) 2. Bb5#

    It's an easy problem because there is only one move to find. Black's move is forced.

    Thanks Xanthos. I meant I want the solution for the main problem though. I suck extra hard at that one.

    I've had three people give up and ask for the solution, which I provided.
