    beautiful smothered mate, but too well-known to be challenging.

    Excellent!  Not easy to see but very logical once you do.

    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.

    And yet another one that doesn't see what happens after Kf8..

    Checkmate by the white queen is a "useful check"

    Just sayin.

    yeewassup: the given solution was the traditional smothered mate, but your alternative was highly creative!!!

    It's just a question of whether you want to win in style!
