    Nice. The ending was familiar to me from TT.  Didn't take long to solve.  Smile

    There is no need to take the rook first.... It's mate in 5

    No, taking the rook is necessary because it's pinning your pieces to the king.

    Nice mate man.

    Except you end up losing after 3. Na6+ Kc8

    Right; with the rook on e8, the threat of Qc7# is impossible. Glad you enjoyed it!
