Almost-Impossible Chess Puzzle: White Checkmates in Two

Remember games where you were way too much material up and then couldn’t win, but drew by landing in a stalemate? Often, handling too much of fire-power sometimes puts you at risk. The trick is to maintain your calm and focus until the very last move. In the position on the left, White has to checkmate in two.

Checkmate in two

Result: 1-0

[…] 1.f8=¥ ¢f6

(1…¢f4 2.¥d6# (0:00:06) 1.f8=B)

2.¥d4# (0:00:13) 1.

Yes, the trick is in the Bishop because making a Rook or Queen will put the Black King in stalemate!
