    I dont see how RxC8 isnt better...? 

     

    I see what you are saying, but it can be deceptive. you have to look at the whole board. moving 1. Rc8+ doesnt work because Bd6 and Qe5 would block Qc1+ by moving Bb1, then all black would have to do is go Qxh2#. then it is game over mate.

    Nice queen sac in move 4 (didn't find it)! Cool

    I tried to promote pawn mate could be possible but not in 6 moves (without the queen sacrifice)! Surprised

    if I were black I would not have blocked the first check with my queen. I would moved my king to the black spot

    And you'll get mated in 5 moves as proved before:

    1 Qf3+ Kb8 2 Rc8 Rxc8 3 Qa8+!! Kxa8 4 dxc8=Q+ Bb8 5 Qc6#
    Perhaps now it's clear that 1...Qe4 2 Qxe4+ makes it a mate in 6 ... Cool

    The 3rd and 4th moves for white may be reversed. 3.Qa8+ KxQ  4.Rc8+ RxR 5.PxR(Q)+ Bb8 6. Qc6 also works. 

    No. Because after 3 Qa8+?! Kxa8 (forced) 4 Rc8+ Kb7! and now there is no mate in the next 2 moves! Wink

    but its not mate in 6, if Kc7

    If 4...Kc7 then 5. Qc8# or 5. dxc8=Q#.

    The problem with your puzzle is that after 3 Rc3 black plays 3 ..., Rd8 blocking white's attempts to checkmate.  Black should be able to win this one.

    OMG, What about a checkmate in 4, not 6:

    1. Qf3, Qe4

    2. Rc8, Rxc8

    3. dxc8=Q, Bb8

    4.Qxe4#

     

    2. Rc8 Kb7!

    why can't you just rook up, taken by black rook, pawn changes to queen by capturing rook, then bishop blocks, queen slides over for mate? 4 moves

    I don't understand...

    1. Rc8+ Rxc8 2. dxc8=Q+ Bb8 3. Qf3+ Qd5 4. Qxd5#

    and it is checkmate in two less moves :|


    Ah, I see it now. I had the second best combination and for some reason was thinking the King couldn't move and just allow the Rook to be taken.

    1. Rc8+ Kb7 2. Qf3+ (2. Rxd8 Qxh2#) Ka6, black has escaped.
