29/08/20 COMPETITION: checkmate in one move!

In this puzzle, whoever’s turn it is to move (white or black) can checkmate in one. Note that the bottom left corner of the board is ‘a1’.

This week’s puzzle is a little trickier than some of our previous puzzles! Use our tips about the king’s field from yesterday’s solution page if you are struggling to find the answers. Use slow and steady analysis to find the correct answer – don’t rush!

Do you think you know the answers? Send them in to us! We will publish the answers, and names of all those who sent us the correct solutions, in our blog next week (if you would rather not be named, please say so!).

This is the fourth puzzle in this set. Everyone who sends in their answers receives at least 1 point. If you send in at least one correct solution you receive 2 points, and those with two correct solutions receive 3 points. The puzzler with the highest score after the set of 6 puzzles will win a solver badge and a free chess lesson with the teacher of their choice! Consistently sending in your results will be key to winning!

Make sure you subscribe below to get notified of the solutions and next week’s checkmate in one puzzle the moment they are published!
