Ulysses' Challenge #8
(Click here for last month's challenge)
(Who is Ulysses?)
Ulysses: It's White's move, and he has various ways to force checkmate in two moves here. The challenge is to figure out how many different moves White can play which will allow him to force checkmate on the next move. List the possibilities you find and get them to Pete (see below).
