Very nice one today!
Very nice! I like the way the queen returns to the square it originally started from
mate in 5
Should be called Mate in 7.
Spot on! Completely missed 1...Rd7. Still, I guess all roads lead to the promised land!
1. Qc7+ Rd7 2. Qxd7+ Kh6 3. g5+ Kxg5 4. Qe7+ Kh6 5. Qf8+ ( 5. Rh4+ Qh5 ) (5. Qh4+ Qh5 ) 5... Kg56. Qf4+ Kh5 7. Qh4#
Slowhare... you're missing 2. Rxd7+ in your analysis. It won't be Mate in 7.
Trust me on this one ;)
I stand corrected. I did consider 2. Rxd7 but overlooked 3. Qf4+ and ended up with a longer chase. Thanks.
