I think it was originally named Lucena's Mate. correct me if am wrong
usually these puzzles are well thought out, but i seem to see another mate in 5, is there anything wrong with:
not saying that this puzzle isn't well thought out
Yeah, I saw the same thing
that is so smart!...nice puzzle. :)
SO SO EASY
to yeewassup if 3 ... Kf8 then Qf7# any way...
Smothered mate! Please tell me if I spelled "Smothered" right or wrong. Thank you.
that was classic, I first saw that mating scheme in a book by Yasser Seirawan written back in the 1990's
Who was the sicko that came up with this?! I LOVE IT!!!
its philidor's mate
Routine but I loved it anyway! Keep the King busy is a better title.
i agree with yeewassup
Teamwork!!!!!!!!!!!! I love it
Sometimes, there's a lot of ways to checkmate the king in a puzzle. But if you make your own puzzle in this site, you can't make two possible moves in one turn.
All too easy
I have seen this one before.
lol that was funny
