Chess Problem: Mate in 1
The following position comes from one of the games last Sunday. Can you see how WiseCrabbyCoconut delivered Checkmate in one move from this position? - Black to play.
Answer: Re2# - this is a lovely checkmate - the Knight and the pawn on e6 defend the squares on the "f" file, the e6 pawn protects Knight, while the King protects the pawn. The King defends d6, while whites own pawn on d4 prevents escape on that square. When the Rook moves to e2, there is nowhere for the White King to go - a very nice checkmate involving lots of pieces. A very good find in Bullet chess.
