    If the pawns were going the other way, then Kc3 b1Q Nc2 Qxc2 Kxc2 is also mate in 3

    And I've seen the second one before. I remember there are two solutions starting with Kd2 I think..

    White to move, what should the result be?

    This looks like a fantastic puzzle Bobby! But the colours not being in the correct colour is causing/throwing me off my game

    Looks very indonesian (White's huge army vs. Black's nimble bishop). This time I believe Black can draw. Adding a black pawn on g7, it is still a draw - this time white is forced to save himself...

    I recommend a6 allowing the White King to escape!

    Blue Knight Chess Puzzle

    Its been a little while since I last posted in this thread. A unique position came up in a game I was playing yesterday on FICS. Accordingly to Fritz, Qd1+ is the first move, it is a forced checkmate. Can you find it?

    [Event "Chess Tournament"]
    [Site "Australia"]
    [Date "2012.01.01"]
    [Round "1"]
    [White "Some Other Person"]
    [Black "You"]
    [Result "0-1"]
    [SetUp "1"]
    [FEN "r5k1/1pp2ppp/1p6/1P6/1n1Q1Bb1/P5P1/2p1KR2/R5q1 w - - 0 1"]

    1. Kd2 Qd1+
