nevermind...there are three possible outcomes that lead to checkmate in 5 moves.
if the 2nd move is Rb7 , then it is mate because if the bishop kills the queen kills the knight (mate) and it doesn't then too queen kills and mate
please reply if i'm wrong
very nice puzzle
After 2. Rb7, black replies with 2. ... Nf6 protecting the d7 square and averting the mate.
@Hlrhaadi. Nothing is "killed" in chess - just captured..
Can anyone please explain me why nit 2.. K*f7?
got it. Thank you Ishan16494
It could have been done in less moves
You can only move once per turn so there is only one choice- the move that you make.
Not by force it couldn't. Only if black cooperates.
