I thought it would be smothered mate.
not many other options...
that was an easy one, that's why I could make it :D
Yes a good puzzle today not too difficult to solve.
I was looking for some kind of Smothered mate as well
Even if I was presented with this mate in a game, I would completely ignore it for the rare opportunity to get a Philodore's mate!
nice and good...
The smothered mate works too, but it takes 5 moves.
