    Damn! Had no problems with all the moves except the first one. Can someone explain it please? =) (luring the queen one diagonal square away with my rook... why?)

    Think I have found a stronger 1st move RB7!! Black is helpless after that, even after 1 ND6 is all over as the E-file will open with devastating effect.

    Why did Black sacrifice the Queen?  Maybe somewhere to prevent White queen on c8.

    nice puzzle. I had some trouble to find the first because Qa8+ and Rb7 are also very strong.

    Can someone please tell me why black queen couldn't defend by moving to C7 on move #2?


    Because of Qa8 +

    Err... I guess the title did say mate in 5, which I missed... but seriously moves like Nd6+ and Rc7 (which I tried) win easily.  I don't think I'd ever find the pretty (and unnecessary) rook sac in a real game.

    I know the point is to learn a pattern... I guess in that repect the puzzle is ok.

    Mate in five either way. I tested it.

    I wanted to say WTF when the Black Queen sacrificed itself for White's g-pawn. I guess the fact that it also checked White's king may have prolonged the mate by 1 move.

    I'm pretty sure that fist person was joking...

    Anyway, what's the point of 2...Qxg3+ ??  Seems like a bad move to me.
