Now that was easy.
Can someone tell me why this puzzle is mate in 6? When I looked at it I saw this variation. Looks like black can last 7 moves.
You are absolutely correct dude!
Come on. Why is this mate in 6? What is the point in solution to have 2...Qd5, and not to have 3...Re6 ? OK, I don't mind that it is basic, people still have to learn.
cannot believe that i got it first. go with the flow and you'll get it!!!
Never use smothered mate in my gfames
Always fail in smothered mate
pretty simple, queen check is the only option to start with, the rest followed a pattern from a previous puzzle, like it still though!
i barly got it
was great I got it easy saw what the idea was right away
Va Va Voom.
this can still be mate in 6 even with the rook sacrificed...
dammit, i don't know how to paste the pgn thing :-(
First! This sort of combination appears every now and them. in Tactics Trainer.
i think if in forcifers mate in 7 you play Nd8+ instead of Nh6+ then its still mate in 6
lol ^ how long is ya name dude haha :P

What is the lamest game or setup position you can think of.
