A place to talk about Gothic Chess items of interest, events and happenings in the chess world, and other topics that are non-flammatory and worthy of subsequent discussion.
I don't see how to do it. 1. Ad6+ and the king gets away to d8. So maybe 1. Kc6 like a waiting move and black still can play Kd8 and I don't see a mate in 2 more. Are you sure this is a mate in 3?
I see the mate! I'll let others try it first.
There are two different mating combinations.
New to this Gothic Chess thing & I gots no clue how to do this checkmate! Answer it already I'm dying to know!
1. Ae6+ Kb82. Ad7+ Ka83. Ac6 mate.
abdul-rahman has the first correct answer! Congratulations!Most chess players miss the fact that the Archbishop can deliver checkmate unassisted, and the white King need not move to administer the mate. Well done.
I missed 1. Ae6+!!!! the winning move. Pretty clever problem.
The second combination:1. Ae6+ Kb82. Ka6 Ka83. Ac7#
This is one of my favorite checkmate problems. It is not too hard and it is also just challenging enough to give your brain a workout! Very cool.
Looks like Ae6 ...Ki8, Af7...Kj8Ai6#
i8 and j8 are on the extreme right side of the board. The mate is forced in the left-hand corner.
Sorry, my fault. When I "solved" the problem, I was using an 8x8 board that did not list co-ordinates. When my set comes in (?), hopefully, that will not happen again.
