Joke problem. White has to mate in one. Only he's touched the knight! how does he mate in one?
Originally posted by doodinthemoodYes, there is no knight move (except for moves where white takes his own material as Gastel suggested) that gives an instant checkmate. Therefore the only thing white can do to get mate in 1 is get mate in 1 after his move. The alternative is Kxf3, but the preamble suggests that a knight move is necessary.
that's mate in 2
