May-23-09  WhiteRook48: Happy birthday!

May-23-16  TheFocus: Happy birthday, Eigil Pedersen.
Jul-17-20  jith1207: Solution to the puzzle probably is

1.Rb5 (intending Bxd5#)
Nf6 (preventing checkmate)

2. Ka6 (any possible silent move without changing the checkmate pattern, Kb6 would give Black an opportunity to make a check) Knight any move (Black can only move the knight, as all other pieces are in stalemate pattern, thus the knight can't prevent checkmate every other move)


Jul-17-20  jith1207: Oops.. Black can move c4-c3, I got busted. So my next stupid attempt at the solution is

1. Bc6 (attempting to Be8-Bg6#)
Nf6 (only way to stop Be8)

2. Bb5 (forces knight to move, if knight is Stubborn, pawn will have to move to c3)

2a... c3

3. Bd3#

2b... Nd7

3. Bxd7


5. Bg6#
