# IMPOSSIBLE mate in 1?

Chess problem requiring an out of the box solution…

Do you see the mate in 1!?

Chess legend has this puzzle as a mate in 1, at first glance it looks good for white, with the threat of promotion,
but whatever he promotes the pawn to can be captured by the black king, simultaneously escaping the rook check…

However, at one point the rules didn’t specify that the piece you are promoting to has to be your own colour, leading to the astonishing promotion of the pawn on b8 to a black knight, which deprives the black king of it’s escape square
as it can’t capture its own piece… it’s checkmate in one.

Now unfortunately, it is illegal to promote to an enemy piece, making this mate in 1 impossible.

Funny chess puzzle, chess meme, eric rosen vs hikaru nakamura agadmator vs gotham chess.
Oh no my queen.

Pb1 takes Rook, then king have to take pawn (it doesnt matter promote) then Kb6 the only move for black is Kb8 then easly mate with rook (tell me if i do something wrong)

11. @lord2821 says:

Not impossible if pawn is reborn as a Queen the black King is pinned. If black tries to eat the queen it opens a check for white

15. @robloxbooksyuh says:

Nah that’s just wrong

16. @robloxbooksyuh says:

Still, you can’t work with the other colour on your move that’s just wrong and the rules did specify that you cannot move the other colour and you did you literally turned your white pawn into a black knight that’s why there is no option for it sorry this is incorrect

17. @dhoom-z7221 says:

I hate the no solution, but very good idea for a video. Love it and hate it.

26. @aisacaress says:

27. @ozqdiac9050 says:

Nah I found another mate so much simpler
First you have to put the chicken nuggets on the plate
The kid will come down
Now get the dog some water
The dog will dribble the water everywhere onto the floor which will make the kid slip as he goes for his chicken nuggets
As he slips he bumps into the king and knocks him over
And that is checkmate
