ok, I had a different variation I think would work
1. Qd6+ Ka8
2. Nc7+ Kb8
then I was thinking
3. Na6+ (double check from knight and queen)
if Kc8, 4. Qc7#
if Ka8, 4. Qb8# Rxb8 Nc7#
to deliver smothered mate...I guess best play is one extra move though, it would be could if these tactics would let you play out less than best play against the computer
There's mate in 3: Qd6, Qb8 & Nc7.
I was doing the puzzel and i got it in 5 sekens i think it was easy TO!!!!!!!!!!!
nice. thanks :) many ways to mate here.
yay i came bake today and THE PUZZEL WAS THE SAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The smothered mate works too, but it takes 5 moves.
The extra move is worth it! Just to show off
Easy and Nice ...
If Black does not capture Nh5 then too he losses but does not get mate
Okay, I have no problem
Funny, built like a smothered but ends in a backrank.Thank you for sharing this puzzle
