I believe that if white starts out with 1. Re7+, he can still force mate in about seven moves - more if black throws in some easily countered interpositions along the way.
What is wrong with rook c3 threatening Knight f2 mate, because the f2 square cant be covered? dosnt that mate as well only interupted by some crazy black sacrifices?
cnat believe that I got it the first time.
A very nice puzzle.
Very nice puzzle.
I went for something different:
1. Re7 Ne6
2. Rxe6+ Kf5
3. Re5+ Kg4
4. Nf2+ Kg3
5. Bd6 Nf4
6. Rg5+ Rxg5
It's a 7 steps mate, but I don't lost any pawns.
Rc3 followed by Nf2 looks like a more efficient mate. The only thing Black can do is delay inevitable mate by sacrificing both rooks via Rxg2+, Kxg2 followed by Rg8+, Kh2. Somebody kick me if I need more caffiene this morning.
Without errors :) ! Cool :) ! :) !
Rc3 followed by Nf2 looks like a more efficient mate.
Yeah, but efficiency is only to force the king on one path, the checkmate.
Btw, your solution is also nice, because the rook kill the pawn with a lot of despair, so the pawn still have a good death. No matter what the king can do after the Kg8 check, black has no other choice that to lose.
Pawns are very useful, they have to be preserved in every game.
nice puzzle :D
@evrains move also very nice (y)
