So, even GM Nezhmetdinov did not find the fastest way ...
So once again, the colors have been reversed for absolutely no good reason!
Very stimulating puzzle. I had a little trouble noticing the best/quickest variation, as I first noticed 1. re3 be4 2. rxe4, rf2+(to delay the mate) 3. nf3+ rxf3(forced) 4. bxf3--and what ever white does now is meaningless so 5. re1 with 6. rh1# coming. Then saw the rook block as being the most effective...
Is anyone else amused by the fact that Chess.com choose not to tell that today's puzzle (of all days) is a mate in 4?Well it worked. I saw the longer 1.Rf1 mate and played it not expecting to get it wrong.http://www.chess.com/forum/category/daily-puzzles
Why not rh3 forcing rook to take then nf3 for mate?
e5 to g6???? checkmate
I agree with Jack Green's comment, as it could have been played smarter with a quicker execution too.
not easy for me!
easy at all times and i know it
Isn't Rf1 stronger?
Oops, I meant Rd1. Nevertheless, I have read your explanations and they make sense.
It was a thing of beauty.
