    Looks at a line with both players making wrong moves, but Black blundering worse and more often.

    2. ... Rxe6? was premature.  At this point c3 would have protected and enhanced the promotion threat and at least tied up one white Rook to prevent it (while both Black Rooks would be free for other action.)

    4. ... g5? was a terrible wasted move.  Any of several other moves (...Re3 or even ...h5) would have been better. 

    Then Black compounds his troubles with another worthless move,
    5. ... Re4? Did he not see the coming checkmate?  He could have at least moved his Rook to e3 to prevent it. for the moment (and simultaneously protect his c-pawn.)

    I can't figure it out.  When I started this morning the daily puzzle at the top of page 1 was the same problem as we see in comments #26 and #32.  Now it shows a completely different puzzle - a smothered mate problem that was the daily puzzle several days ago.

    What is going on?
