Answer To Chess Puzzle #63

The answer is for black to play R-e1 check. White is forced to play K-g2. Black then plays N-e3 check. If white moves the king, then black plays N-f5 which attacks the white queen and prevents the mate. If white plays pxe3 instead, black follows with Q-c2 check and then there is an easy series of checks that depending on play, either win the f6 pawn, the white queen or the game.

Answer To Online Chess Endgame Puzzle #31

The answer is N-h2. White is pretty much forced to play R-d3. Black then plays N-f3 and white is forced to trade his rook for the knight. After the black king recaptures the rook, black has an easily won end game by moving his king into position to queen his pawn. Congratulations if you found the correct move!
