    White makes the first move, then black has a move of course, but then white must give checkmate.

    It's ok but what if black king moves to somewhere else?

    I'd go Bishop to B6. Then, Queen to D8. He can still get out, but meh.

    Re: Chesspuzzle #2

    So Uchihaminato won then, because I agree with his solution, also this is a lot simpler than the last one. Make another harder one.

    Edit: Ok, I found another way to checkmate him in two.

    1. White Ke5 - Kd6

    This leaves 4 possible scenarios (actually there are more than 4 but most of them can be described in the 4th scenario)

    1st Scenario

    If
    1. Black Ke8 - Kd8
    2. White Qd5 - Qa8++

    2nd Scenario

    If
    1. Black Ke8 - Kf8
    2. White Kd6 - Kd7++

    3rd Scenario

    If
    1. Black Bh5 - Bf7
    2. White Qd5 - Qa8++

    4th Scenario

    If
    1. Black does any other possible move (e.g move a pawn, or move a bishop to a different square)
    2. White Qd5 -Qg8++

    So you can also checkmate in two like this. But of course, Uchihaminato's solution is the most obvious one.

    That's ok, yeah this one was easier...but last time it was so hard that only one guy could solve it...
