I like to congratulate you for your Chess page, is pretty much well designed.
Solving Chess problems in your page, I noticed that the #6 mate in two problem can have a different answer than the one you provide.
The new solution is as follows: 1. g4+ Ke4 2. Rd6#
Well, I really hope that you include this other option.
We checked the
Chess problem you mentioned and is not really the way you describe it (1.g4+ Ke4 2.Rd6#) since the black Pawn at g7 can effectively block the mate in two (1.g4+ Ke4 2.Rd6+ g6!), see problem below:
Thus, a mate in three moves is produced which it is not the objective of this mate in two
Thank you for
