Ending Laboratory (Bishop)

I was at the Touch Move Chess Center when one of the attendees grabbed me and challenged me to this problem. See if you can solve it!


White to play and mate in three!


    1. It’s is good to see a famaliar theme my friend! All squares along a diagonal are not create equal! Bh8! Kf5 Kg7 Ke5 Kg6++

  1. First move the top pawn, then black king will be move to down left corner .Now you move the top pwan to topmost box and get the queen. Now there is no chance to black king to move any box. So i.e. stale mate.

    I think i.e. the answer

  2. For me the key was viewing the mate in 4. I admit to taking a while
    with this one….

    1. Bh8 Kf5 2. Kg7 Ke5 3. Kg6++ Beautiful!!!!(and thankyou for sharing this one)
