Classic smothered mate! I'm still waiting to get this kind of mate in a game!
Study it harder next time. He can't go to h6, he's not jumping two squares. Over his pawns.
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
You're correct. That's the solution I found too.
this is mate in 3
Someone with a name like mine doesn't have problems solving this type of puzzle. lol
yay!! first try!!
"smothered mate" :) classic
variation on the same theme. philidor's legacy--the smothered check.
Had this one too, and the Queen doesn't die... ;)

I had the same idea, but then I was brought to realise that the black king wasn't obliged to go to the corner, and if it goes Kf8 instead, there are no useful checks anymore.
