    From the starting position black puts white in checkmate in three moves. Using the same piece each time. How?

    How to make a double check where the piece that you moved doesn't threaten the opponent's king?

    en passant

    The hapless white is losing so he is allowed to move different pieces, but yes, black moves the same piece each time.. and indeed, en passant is what I was going for.
