Dailypuzzle seems to be on vacation, and the solution to PCFilho's Mate in 3 Puzzle of May 17th (posted at http://jornalheiros.blogspot.in/) is 1.Qg7+; Rxg7 (forced) 2. Rxc8+; Rg8 (forced) 3 R(either 1 of the 2)xg8#
Why doesn't black play bishop takes knight?
queen a6 or 7 would have been fine aswell
No.Qa6+ Qxa6Qxa7+ Qa6
King on the run
it should be checkmate in 2..
When does the new daily puzzle come up???
These are not hard its too and very easy
Thanks for the replies. I now see why the bishop didn't capture the knight.
Show us how!
why not go Knight to f6 and than "Q" to b7?
1 Nf6 Kc7 2 Qxb7+ Kd6 would be a long way to mate (certainly not in 5)!
If Black wants only to prevent a mate in 5 after 1 Nf6 Qe4 will also do it!
jakester127, if white can get his bishop to c6, that puts on much more pressure and probably also leads to mate.
It certainly looks like white gets to a winning position, but it will take him several moves to set up a forced mate after Bc6 as black has some good defensive options, such as Nb6, that keep him alive for a while. Such a set up can't get the mate in 5 required by the puzzle.
