All too easy
I have seen this one before.
lol that was funny
I'm finally starting to be able to see this immediately.
I like smoothered mate puzzles
wow so awesome, first i thought oh noo... smart!
I think this works too:
1. Qe6+ Kh8 2. Nf7+ Kg8 3. Nd8+ Kh8 4. Qe8+ Qf8 5. Qxf8#
*and you don't sacrifice your queen this way
-oh, everyone else already noticed the second solution, so nevermind...
what a easy but nice puzzle
Nice Basic Puzzle! Classical!
I like it!!
What a smothered mate_with a few moves in between! I would love to win like that.
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
I have to agree
smothered mates are really rare but when you can get them they are really cool and nice!
This puzzle was easy. And there is another 5 move solution that is every bit as clever. Block the rooks on the third move with the knight.
nice alt yehwassup
A classic postion that reappears many times. Even I encountered it in a casual game once. Elegant and satisfying.
