look at the post: i win ripper of a game
I think 3. Qxe8+ Kxe8. 4. Raf1 also forces mate. Just doesn't have the spectacular Queen sac.
2. Rg6 or 2. Rh6 looks promising, but (for example)
2. Rh6 Qb6+ 3. Kf1 c6 4. f8=Q+ Kc7 5. Qxe7+ Kb8 6. Bxc8
... and so on. White is great, of course, but it's not mate in 5.
Nice but simple :)
simple but nice .
I prefer 4. Rg6+ Kf8 5. Rg8#. Without horsie check is a better solution.
Why not this?
4. Rg6+ Kf8 5. Rg8#
I agree with previous comment. It seems easier. Although Nd5+ is stronger, it doesn't matter after checkmate. :) I think the 1st line is a human choice and the 2nd line is a computer choice.
It has 2 solutions.
Yes NM sir.
I know the title says mate in 5, but that is because the player didn't see mate in 4
rf7 is not mate because of kxe6
ah! I see it now
