His Majesty the White King decided to rest from chess and went skiing in...
However, I am not going to clarify - paparazzi! Moreover, they say that His Majesty went to rest, not alone!
Hush! Let it be King\'s secret!
Meanwhile, on the chessboard has left 2 white Queens and the black King. How many moves need white to mate
the black king (all pieces are arbitrary)? Too easy? Oh, I forgot small detail - chess board is endless!
How now?! Good luck!
PS For the solution, You will need standard chess Board and a little imagination!
PPS the Solution to this puzzle and next one will be published on 23 June.

I wish I was the KING.....!

And there are more adventures on a chessboard than on all the seas of the world.-

This is to do with Aleksandra Kostenyuk, isn\'t it?-

It seems unbelievable that white checkmate on the 4-th move-

6Canada  dsuttlesChessHere Moderator2014-06-24 06:05:50
It most certainly does.-

Now let\'s see how it\'s done. First of all we need normal chess Board. Place it on our endless Board so that the black king was situated on the field of, say, E5.

The first step. Queen #1 do check on line E. Black king has the ability to retreat to 6 fields. No matter what, but let it be D5.The second step. Queen#2 takes any place on line B. Black king has four moves : D4 , D6, C4 or C6. No matter again (all positions are symmetric). Let it be D4. The third step. 3.Q(#2)b4+!

Foolish puzzle #2(2) A lady on Noviy Arbat said, \'Anything can happen in Russia these days.\' The moment she said that, a clown came walking down the street with a serious look on his face. The lady couldn\'t believe her eyes, but no-one else seemed to notice. Was it an apparition?

Good question! In what year did this happen? And if You were walking along the Old(Staryi) Arbat - imagine what could happen?-

17Canada  dsuttlesChessHere Moderator2014-07-07 12:14:56
Hm, yes, it is a true story, and I was there. I was trying to be mysterious about that. It was 1993. And come to think of it, it was Stariy Arbat. There was a tank blocking Noviy Arbat that day.-

18Canada  dsuttlesChessHere Moderator2014-07-10 12:22:51
Maybe my puzzle was an apparition?-

19Russian  kai20112014-07-11 16:20:53
Russia in 1991-2001 was an apparition-

\'The solution will be published on Friday.\'-

21Canada  dsuttlesChessHere Moderator2014-07-18 16:40:37
It\'s Friday, and the clown with a serious look on his face was on his way to work.-

22Russian  kai20112014-07-19 18:06:20
