Piece of cake.
Difficult puzzle but nice.
why not Qd5 instead of Qb3?
simple! and there is another way for black to tackle this!!
Took some thought - all I ask.
Anyone else see 2. Ra7+ also forces a mate?
It forces mate, but only in five moves (3. ... Ka8), whereas this solution is mate in four.
After 2:Ra7+, black has four options:2. ... Kc8, 3.Qxc7#2. ... Kb8, 3.Qxc7#2. ... Kb6, 3.Qxc7#2. ... Kxa7, 3.Qxc7+ Now black has two options:
3. ... Ka6, 4.Ra1#3. ... Ka8, 4.Ra1+ Qa6, 5.Rxa6#
Hmm played Ra7+ well it was good anyways.
You were one move from mate,so you needed to keep black in check which was not to hard to do 1.Ra8+...Kb7, 2.Qb3+...Kxa8, 3.Ra1+...Qa6, 4.Rxa6#,every move was forced,my hardest move to find was 2.Qb3.Thank's Chess.Com,good day chess head's
very nice play
