Smouthered mate is also possible! (Stupid Puzzle!) But it's mate in 5 ...
3 Na6+ Ka8 (3...Kc8 4 Qc7#) 4 Qb8+ Rxb8 5 Nc7#
In a real game if you "only" see the smouthered mate, just play it. Don't look for a faster way!
Is 3. Na6++ wrong?
very nice thankyou
no option for black king...
i think there is also alternate solution.
At last I got one with no cheating - must be easy!
very nice puzzle, hope i get a chance to use it in a real game
I thought it would be smothered mate.
smothered mate 2! me :)
3 ka6++ is smarter
So, I just miniatured a titled master...
