Is it possible for Chess.com to either post the mate in five if black plays 2...Bh6, if there is one, or admit their mistake if there isn't one? There are people spending time looking for a mate in five that they can't find and doesn't appear to exist. Please help them out. Even though I did not spend alot of time looking for a mate in five on 2...Bh6, as I gave up pretty quickly, I am curious myself. Thank you.
I think that there is a solution button to push. It would probably shed more light on the subject.
I am looking for lines in an alternate solution. Does the solution button help with that? If it does please let me know. Thanks.
Why are you looking for an answer that is not an answer? That does not make sense. Not trying to be rude.
Yes I agree I am looking for an answer that is not an answer. That is the main point. So back to original point, Chess.com should admit that it is not an answer, making the title flawed and therefore misleading. This is causing people to waste time looking for a solution that doesn't exist. If the title says "Mate in 5" then all possible solutions and lines need to back it up. If 2...Bh6 still leads to a mate in five, then they need to show how because no one else has, and people are wondering.
Not trying to be rude, but I don't think we agree.
Good bad or indeferrent.
Oh man.... I did that 5-mover with no mistakes! Always very exciting solving such puzzles in your real serious steps towards chess.
Didn't really get that but fairly obvious now I see it - must practise my lateral thinking.
Well done 'IncrediBill' for spotting Bh6 countermove: There's no way I can see mate in 5 after that.
Good use of pieces.
