After King escapes to Kh5, Nf6+, Kh7, Qe7. I don't think rook to h8 works after Qe7 cuz then Ng4+ again and black is in a mating net (this time has to take Knight). Rook to d8 wont work cuz of Ng8+ and following Qh4#. What else can black do? He can give a check with Nf3+, but after Kf2, what check can black give that won't lose the knight? (Qd2+, Re7).
If then black tries Ng5 as defense, fxg5+ and black is lost after kxg5, h4+, Kh6, Qxh7#
Great puzzle! Simple but fun to look at all the alternate lines, in all of which black loses immediately
This is MATE IN 5! Can you find it?
1 Rxf7+!! Kxf7 2 Qxe6+ Kg7 3 Qf7+ Kh8 4 Qxh5+ Kg7 5 Qh6#
Here is a puzzle!
I totally agree with CsokaEndre - this is NOT a good puzzle..too many loose ends, variations, and finally a mate in 13 (maybe)?? For those of you that found it easy I remind you of the quote, "They called him a half-wit, not realizing that they only comprehended one-third of what he meant..."
Here are more puzzles!
I meant to say here is another puzzle
Nice puzzle! I started correctly but then went 3. Re7+ and Black could move Kg8, spoiling it...
Nice idea with playing the queen over to the h-file so she can take on h7. Quite hard to calculate. But the lack of sidelines helps alot.
very good !!!!!!
Quite confusing but solved
hmmmm. this ain't a forced mate puzzle isnt it?
I enjoyed todays puzzle. thanks!
