That was quite an easy one!
Made mistake and checked with Qb5 for first move,acted to quickly,found right move Bc6+...Bd7,2.Bxd7+...Rxd7,sacing the B made sense knowing I still had a R and a Q waiting for the kill, 3.Rb8+...Rd8, 4.Qb5+...c6, 5.Qxc6#,nice puzzle,should have looked at board and not have acted so quickly and I would have realized I would have had to sac Q when black could block Q check with Bd7,black could have blocked with Rd7 also,then I could have checked with Rb8,but that's not what happened.Thank's Chess.Com,good day chess head's
seems a wee bit olbvious.....
There are many ways to give checkmate black.
Nice job with alternate
not fair, cuz he could take the Bishop with the King, and not with the Rook
Look at post 22,it's still mate in 5
Here are 2 solutions (4) Mate in 5
This puzzle is nice because it has four different ways to deliver mate-in-five
Quite interesting for the novice..... My attention quickly went to thy crippling king side then thy noticed the bishop
Why do people sometimes replicate a position in the puzzle or just re-release the puzzle?However, nice analysis murometzyx & paulified22. Nice to see more variety
it was easier than i expected "mate in 5".
yeah 3 rd page finished it a nice pin
molto facile !
