I like ending with the smothered mate!
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!
this isnt a mate in 6
Yes, it actually is. Fail person.
Easy puzzle.. got every move.
