Mate in Two 27 May 2015

May 27th, 2015 by Math Tricks | Filed under Mate in Two.


Chess is a great way to build up reasoning and pattern recognition skills.  That is why I am introducing chess problems as a new type of puzzle for users to enjoy.

Here is our very first puzzle.  White moves first, and white can mate in two.  Can you see the solution?

If you don’t know standard chess notation, no prob – just describe your solution in words.
