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.)
Very good but that was mate in 5 and not 3 as stated above.
Mate in 3 minutes maybe :?
This puzzle is mate in 5 not mate in 3 as stated.
It looks like there's discussion on three different puzzles going on...where's the one where Black queens?
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?
i have seen this puzzle b4...very nice...
why does it say mate in three..?
Easy, but nice puzzle!!
Mate de la coz. Muy bonito
Thats a mate in 5...not 3
Mate in 3? I believe it takes 5 moves...
it is mate in 5 not in3
Seems to me to be a mate in 5, not in three... but, who is counting! :)
They should make these puzzles more difficult and more diverse. This smother mate pattern comes way to often.
