Mate in two moves We have received 218 correct answers to our puzzle competition: 1 Qh8!! very unexpected and beautiful solution! Alexandra has decided to give out 18 main prizes – Here are the winners: Ron, Roberto (Italy), Yochanan Afek (Amsterdam), Sir James (Hong Kong), Dr. James Fabunmi, Denis Maragoudakis, Albert Rich (California), Dave Bayless (Colorado), Photios Barvas (Switzerland), Fadi Qassis (Palestine), Corno Claver (South Africa), Daniel (Australia), Aeron Ives, Bill Schulte (Illinois), Kaz Ozawa (Japan), Aldo Haik (France), Michael (New Zealand), and Yuri Braverman. Yonachan Afek gets a special prize since he even pointed out that the original problem on which we based on puzzle had the Queen on f6, which makes the first move 1.Qh8 even more surprising and beautiful! We have emailed the 18 winners asking for their addresses, we will ship them their gift from Alexandra! And the next 200 correct solvers, will also get a consolation prize in their email these next couple of days! Keep posted for more puzzles and more prizes in the future! :-)
