How can we not resist the Knight Fork as a first move?
Of course, Black would play d5 instead of h6, so it would be Mate in 6 instead of 5, but still, the Fork is just too tempting to look for anything else.
The alternative would be to resist the Rook capture, but it would still end up as a Mate in 6.
Really good Puzzle.
thought smothered mate the whole way....i guess i was in the ballpark
who managed to solve the problem?
there is more than one solution thanks to incredibill. The first move was the toughest because the knight fork is not correct
Way beyond me.............good puzzle............
I got the mating sequence idea right away, but it took me a few minutes to find the key first move, which combines back rank, deflection, and discovery tactics, which then leads to smothering tactics shortly thereafter.
