    It still mates, but it takes longer.

    I wonder why this puzzle doesn't go through with the checkmate. After all...

    5. ...Kc7

    6. Rb7+ Kc8

    7. Qc6#

    A fairly simple continuation like that could've as well been included in the puzzle. Oh well, perhaps someone just made a mistake somewhere and uploaded it a bit early or something. Still, fancy puzzle.

    It doesn't go through the end, because there are 2 possible continuations to mate the black king (Rb7 and Qb7). The puzzle always only allows 1 move.

    Fun, but somewhat strange chess puzzle. The solution isn't checkmate because the black King could have moved to c7, but that isn't that odd because the puzzle's title isn't something like "Mate in ...". Anyway, nice change of pace with a puzzle such as this! It DID take me a few tries, though... Wink
