Player: kai2011 Subject: Foolish puzzle #2
|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.....!

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

|It seems unbelievable that white checkmate on the 4-th move||-|
|6 dsuttles||2014-06-24 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+!
3. ... Kd5(d3).
Final step! 4. Q(#1)e4#!!
End of story!

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?
|16 kai2011||2014-07-07 08:25:31|
|Good question! In what year did this happen? And if You were walking along the Old(Staryi) Arbat - imagine what could happen?||-|
|17 dsuttles||2014-07-07 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.||-|

|Maybe my puzzle was an apparition?||-|
