  1. White will play knite to c4
    Black will play rook into e6
    White will play knight to b6 checkn
    Black has only one option rook into b6
    White will play bishop to b3 checkmate
    And the game is over

    My answer is right or wrong please reply.

      1. 𝚆𝚑𝚒𝚝𝚎 – c6

        𝙱𝚕𝚊𝚌𝚔 – if black plays knight in to e6 pawn then white will play knight to c4 and after Black’s any move it’s knight b6 mate

        And if black plays any rook into pawn on e6 then knight into d3 if black plays rook any where then it’s bishop b3 mate and if black doesn’t plays rook then it’s knight c5 mate.

        And if any other move black plays other than we discussed then knight into d3 and then black play any move it’s knight c5 mate.
