Another good one. I liked it.
Got it on my first try! and in under 5 seconds!!!! TT must be working really well I guess
easiest mate in 5 i've done, but still a great puzzle
First time I did a puzzle on my first try.
that was fun
got it first try. i know you throw in those easy ones once in a while to keep us coming back and we do appreciate that.
that was fun
Fine: NOT to easy.
I hate when people say, "too easy!" because sometimes they are somewhat easy, but it makes me feel like a noob. I haven't played chess in a fewmonths so im nto really good anymore ^.^ ughhh
why not 2 Nf6?
2.Nf6 blocks white's open f file and since it isn't a checkmate, it allows black to launch his attack by:
Welcome to reply for any faster mates regarding this :)
You have to find a way to checkmate with check every move. If not Black has either ...Qf4+ or ...Bf4+ (and maybe even mate or perpetual check)!
Your right,but I do not see any perpetual check,depend's what white move's on move 1,Qd8+ never give's black a chance to get out of mate,nice job!!!
If White blunders with 2 Nf6?? Black has at least perpetual check beginning with 2...Bf4+ indeed there is checkmate: 3 g3 Qxg3+ 4 Kh1 Qh2# (3...Bxg3+ 4 Kh1 Qf3+ 5 Kg1 Qf2+ 6 Kh1 Qh2# is also possible.) (By the way with 3...Qf2+ you'll have a perpetual check!)
cool puzzle. I thought it was smothered mate at first.
