with equal powers but still white wins... good one
Poor king. Nice puzzle :D
i did it so easily ............
Tough, but solved it. Knew it had to be all checks with black threatening checkmate. Also knew white needed both rooks, bishop, and knight to complete the mating net. This ruled out 1. Rc6+ and 1. Ne6+. On 1. b4+ Kc4 all three follow up checks for white, 2. Rc6+, 2. Bd5+, and 2. Be2+, allow black to capture the checking piece. This left 1. Nb3+ as the only option, and after that I just saw the mate through to it's conclusion.
wow, I actually got this
done last page
i could solve it in one attempt without mistake. very interesting puzzle. thanx.

A Nice line, but I can't believe black would do those helpless interposes at those points.
Please show us how it is Mate In 5 if black moves 1. ... Kg7
It looks like white's best line is 1. d5+ Rxa1 2. Qxa1+, followed by taking the queen. Unless 1. Qh1+ Kg7 does lead to a forced checkmate, 1...Kg7 looks like the best response to 1. Qh1+. Other replies lose too much material.
wow intersting puzzle
