doesn't 1. Qb8+ also take care of things?
not an easy mate from where it ends
a) 6...Kg6 7 Qg8+ Kh6 8 Rh7#
b) Your line is far too complicated: 6...Kh6 7 Qh8+ Kg6 8 Qg8+ Kh6 9 Rh7# Simply use the Rf7 as a blocking line ...
7...Kg5 instead of Kg6 will stretch that line out as well.
Correct sir. Best I could come up with after seeing your latest comment.
This was a mate in 3. I d not understand the purpose of running through a bunch of unnecessary moves?
Please show us (your) mate in 3!
Nice one! Thanks.
nice one again............
I think it's easier and better to mate black by first moving the queen to B8
This (1 Qb8+) was my try too (1...Kg7). However Black has a flight square on h6.
Here I don't see any continuation of the White attack!
The problem for White is that f8 is covered by the Qc5! Black threatens 2...Nxc2 (if 3 Nxc2 Black mates 3...Rd1+ 4 Ne1 Rxe1#)! (After 3 Rxc2 Black can either play 3...Rd1+ or 3...Qg5+ or 3...Rg4+. Probably best is 3...Rg4+ 4 Kf1 Qxe3 - both sides are in danger!)
managed to get it
Complicated moves, a very good puzzle.
Thanks for the lesson.
This isn't hard.
Yes, the moves were complicated. But it was solved!
The scariest game I ever played.
