i beat it in the second try. The answer is for white : Bc6+,Bxd7+, Rb8+,Qb5+,Qxc6#
pretty easy one... 1st mmmmmooooovvvvveeeee!!!!!
I just wonder why woudn't the black king attack the bishop!
break em down break em down!
If the king "agrees" in being extracted, then follows the check with the white queen in b5. The black king will have three choices: 1) Kc8,to get immediately mated by the white rook (Rb8); 2) Kd6, to get immediately mated by the white queen coming to d5 (Qd5); 3) Ke6, trying to escape along a corridor between its own black pawns and the "forbidden rank" swept by the white queen. Bringing the white knights to the fourth rank, first with Nf4+ and then Ne4#, you'll complete the job. Knight checks restrict the choices of the defense to capture or flight, since interposing a piece doesn't work. Knight checks, then, restrict changes in the position, during the chase to the king. I hope I may be right and may help you.
Nicly said,and you are correct,Thank's
theres mate in 4 too
Thought about Qd5+ for first move,which would have forced Kh8,then checking with Rf8...RxRf8,but then I could not mate with Qg8,or Qd8,because KxQg8,and Nc6xQd8, so I checked 1.Qf7...Kh8, 2.Qf7+...RxQf7, 3.RxRf7,nice puzzle felt good to solve,Thank's. Opp's,this post was for puzzle winner 5775 posted
Can't this be Nd5, Bxd5, Qb5+, Rd7, Rb8#?
It's okay, just put your peices in order.
