Mate in 5, no?
Why is named mate in 3~~???!
The mate in 5 is a really nice puzzle! I like the forced path to a smothered mated.
Was it me or was this mate in five, not three as the title says?
Mate in 3? More like mate in 5!
Shouldn't this be called MATE IN 4?
Good puzzle, though it's mate in five, not in three moves!
Mate in 5*
The classical... Few alternatives... And yes, mate in 5...
I think this is a repeat...
Why mate in 3????
Say can anyone tell me why this is not possible:
3. Nxd8+ Kh8
4. Qe8+ Nf8
3. Nxd8+ Kf8
that was 5 moves. not 3.
Was it me or did it take five moves and not three to effect this mate?
mate in 3... errr 5
