good puzzle. Wish to use it in a real match.
i thought of smothered mate
I was looking for a smothered mate ..
Glad to see I wasn't the only one looking at the smothered mate angle.
Disgruntled_Sheep you cant get this mate, i guess you rely on putting queen right beside the black king right? well, you hoped the ladder eats it whereas KING will take it and no one protects the queen
Есть более красивый мат!
I thought it would be smothered mate.
kill my brain today im slow
I wonder if there is some free coach here in chess.com. This puzzle is way out of my league.
Every honest chess player would prefer a queen sac followed by a smothered mate. This version is lacking the aesthetic quality.
