i am surprised
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.
It should be a mate in 7. I have no idea why the rook doesn't block.
If you had actually taken the time to look through the comments, you would have seen melogibbo's diagram on page three which shows that if the rook blocks it is still mate in six.
Saweet, Just finished watchinga video on this mating pattern. For those interested.
Easy :) !
Thanks for the lesson! The ole' famous Smothered Mate!
14 Hours ; Alice I am going to send you to the moon.
Please be relevant, helpful & nice!
I don't understand why black sacrificed its queen for no apparent reason.

a new line is r.blocks at e file,qxr+, kh8(f8 ,q mates atf7) kh8,n.+f7,kg8,nxq +,kh8,n+,kg8,n.h file +,kh8,qg8+,rxq, n. mate
What an excellent problem...
That was a great puzzle.
