    it doesn't make us sack our queen, which is rule 3 of chess.com puzzles.

    I also saw yeewassup's solution first.  Is there anything wrong with it?

    The classic Smothered Mate. If you had trouble finding this, study it again.

    This is a very achievable tactic.  I have surprised many opponents with it.

    The book solution, which is the one I saw, is very clever.  And also I like the solution that yeewassup came up with.  Two solutions in one puzzle!  A double treat!

    re: previous mate in 4 post, mate in 4 looks possible or if King goes to h8 it turns into a mate in 5.  I'm really a big fan of 2 move puzzles where the first move is not a check and the secodnd move is mate, can we get mpore of those

    This is what I thought the answer was.

    I can see a mate in 4 actually. 1) Qe6+ Kh8 2) Nf7+ Kg8 3) Ne5+ Kh8 4) Ng6#

    The Nd8+ line has already been brought up.  It's no mate-in-4, the Black queen has a chance to block if 3... Kh8, it's an alternate mate-in-5.

    Kidding with this one right?  The pawn just takes the Knight.  It what world did you think that was checkmate?
