I want to post a little chess puzzle that was presented to us Wednesday night by our own Colin Dougherty. This is an interesting chess puzzle for you to ponder.
In the following position, the White king has been knocked off the board. You must determine where the White king should be placed back on the board. That’s it — no more information than that. You don’t need to know who’s move it is/was or anything else. The position, after the White king has been restored to it’s correct position, WILL be a legal position. You might need to figure out what the previous couple of moves were to understand it a bit more. Feel free to post in the comments if you have the solution or any questions. There is absolutely NO trickery involved.
I will post the answer next week.
Something you might want to consider: If it’s White to move, then why is Black in check? If it is Black to move (because he appears to be in check), then what was White’s last move to get the bishop on a4 to deliver check?
