    Saw the queen sac and smothered mate immediately, but kept looking for a mate in 3 as the title suggested.

    I'm still new to this, but how was that mate in 3? Maybe my counting is off. :)

    The puzzle is changing. Before this puzzle it is mate in three, now the title didn't change, but the puzzle change.

    You can see the first page telling the pawn power, telling it use pawn.

    wrong solution, its a steelmate in 3 like we have seen a thousand thimes, but the solution is mate in 5...

    I suppose that after the third move the smothered mate pattern is just automatic...though I suspect that the first-pagers are talking about a different problem than the one I got.
