    'nother one. A little harder? At any rate, I think I'm done for now.

    couldn't resist. If you must choose one, try this puzzle as opposed to the one above.

    *changes made*. Mate in 5, only one solution...(thanks likesforests)

    puntworthree, your 8:01pm puzzle is not so good because there are two mates that are faster than yours: 4.Nc5+ Ka5 5.Ra7# (I spotted this one by eye) and 4.Nb8+ Ka5 5.Ra7# (I spotted this one double-checking with my computer).

    Your 3:23pm puzzle is very nice. I've actually been reviewing pins this week.  :)

    Completely fictitious, time (and players no doubt) will tell how tactically sound the initial play *actually* is.

    I already provided provided two faster solutions, so your 8:01pm puzzle + solution is not a good candidate for the daily puzzle. After 4.Nc5+ Black is forced to play 4...Ka5, and then 5.Ra7# mates. This is a common way to use the knights to create a mating net. Play it out yourself or consult with your favorite chess engine and you will see.

    With all due respect, likesforests, I didn't edit the 8:01pm puzzle to come out with the 6-move mate I'd origonally proposed. This morning I noted that your notation was accurate (and that your mating route was therefore better than mine) and the new solution (if you click on the puzzle again) is one of the five move checkmates you suggested.

    The reason for the extra bishop was to ensure that there was, in fact, only one five-move solution (not to come up with the solution I had wanted to begin with).

    I agree your edited version of the 8:01pm puzzle is accurate and good. So people reading this thread later aren't confused, here's the original puzzle we were discussing:

    [FEN "1k6/7p/5Np1/1p1N4/p6P/3P4/r3P1q1/2RK3R w - - 0 1"]

    {Mate in 6} 1. Nd7+ Ka8 2. Rc8+ Kb7 3. Rc7+ Ka6 4. Nb8+ Ka5 5. Nc6+ Ka6 6. Ra7#

    Not my originality but i would like to share it with you all. An easy puzzle mate in 3.

     I think you can mate in two if you move queen into c8, and then b7. is there a problem with that?

    experimenting with pins and such...


     hmm.... I thought of Kg5, followed with Rg8, then Qg7... works as an alternative right?

    gamefrikz: no, deffinately not (no offense). White may still win, but not in three moves, and not by your line. Kg5 leads to 1...Bxe5+, from which white's only moves (once the knight has moved) are king to g4 (mate in one for black) or f4. From there, black can avoid white's mate threat (Rxg8+; Qa,c8#) with a few checking options (of which Bxe4+ is probably the most promising).
