much elegant is 3.Na6++ Ka8(3...Ka7 Qc7#) 4.Qb8! Rb8 5.Nf7#
Last!!! Just once I wanted to post this.
One of those problems with more than one answer.
If a chess math was that easy
Me parece que puede ser tambien:
Of course the most beautifull way, is to not hit the rook but do 3.Ka6-Ka8 4.Qb8-Rxb8 5Kc7 MATE!
Would have looked better as a smother mate!!! Instead of Knight taking rook, Na6(double check), If King goes to c8 it's mate with queen at c7, So King moves to the corner at a8, then Qb8+ Rxb8 And smother mate with Knight mating at c7
2... RxD. No bueno.
This puzzle has been up for more then a day now. Right?
The first move is the hardest.
Like the first cut was the deepest
Where is today's puzzle?
