    The opponents king has to be on an outside rank. Your king needs to be 2 squares further in ie: 1 square between the 2 kings. The rook then moves to the same rank as the opponent's king - check mate!

    I still cant see how this is possible - can someone give a layout of a check mate scenario where one player only has a rook and a king

    White king on e1, Black king on e3, black rook moves to a1,b1,c1,g1 or h1. Checkmate.

    Here's a link to my first game at RHP, and is maybe an example even though I still had a few other pieces, but the rook and king are used here to give checkmate.

    Yeah, that one is a pain. It's certainly possible, but it's easy to stalemate if you aren't careful!

    That is a very long game. A good player could run you around for 40 moves

    First off, lets start with

    White King on g2
    Black King on f4
    Black Rook on b3

    In this position White is almost forced to the corner. If white moves king to f2 the rook can force him into mate sooner. Grab your board, or use Winboard and see the Mate with a King and Rook for yourself ass follows:

    correct me if i'm wrong, but the only combinations that cannot mate a king on his own are two knights, a singlw knight or a single bishop. everything else can. two bishops can, a knight and a bishop can (although this is extremly hard...), a rook can, and a queen can(😲)

    I think you are right, although I would consider my self VERY LUCKY if I pulled a Mate off with just 2 Bishops and a King! Also, perhaps the 2 Knights could do it if the loan King made mistakes. 🙄

    2 bishops is a definate mate (http://www.redhotpawn.com/core/playchess.php?gameid=149920), but i don't think 2 knights is. but yeah, maybe if they made a mistake...

    Even after looking I would still consider myself lucky to pull the mate off with 2 bishops and a king... Especially from that start position you used. I just don't have it memorized as well as the Rook and King one (yet).

    Any time you want to set up a strange position feel free to invite me... Or even a game if you have time in your busy chess schedule. I am good for a move or 3 a day.
