    Chessbase Christmas Puzzles

    Can someone help me with this puzzle, it's driving me nuts!

    http://www.chessbase.com/puzzle/chri...6/chr06-1a.htm

    I've been trying for a few days and have almost convinced myself it can't be done

    I've tried the king on b7, d6 & f7, using seemingly all combinations of pieces, I've tried to set up discovered mates along files and diagonals but nothing seems to work Help.

    Nice puzzle ... I'm normally not good at these sorts of things, but managed to work this one out in about 10 minutes.

    Email me if you want any hints, or even the solution: stephen.frost@croydonchess.com

    Well I've finally worked it out, with a clue from Frosty and the help of my girlfriend who has only recently learned how the pieces move.

    The pieces MOVE?!?

    No wonder I can never work out any of these puzzles.
