### Try solving this

It's plain and simple-it's White to move and mate in two moves. I dare you to try and solve it!

WTM, #2

(= 9+3 )

1.fg e.p. h4 2.g8R mate

Nice job solving Siegfried! But tell me, how does that makes any sense? ;D
:

Black has no last move. So it is black to play. However there is no mate in two even if black starts and white takes his two moves. Only way is for the white knight to capture white pawn and mate on b6 !

I think it is a joke puzzle. The last Black's move was Pg8-g6 :-)

Mate in 1, Bf7-d5. The bishop is 3 m tall and can
shoot over the horse :-)
(That's the problem with joke puzzles, if the solvers
get creative the joke is on you...)

Yes Vitaly! But how did it get there?

I don't know.
Maybe Pg7 was scared in the start game-array position and it leaned back, pushing Sg8 off the board :-)

0.g8=bP Pg8-g6 1.fxg7 e.p.

That is correct indeed Viktoras.

since anything goes, my solution also correct
