I see checkmate in 4.... it only involves sacrificing the queen for checkmate

Nice to see all the people whining about 2. ...Kxd7, unable to work out the alternative mate for themselves and too bone idle to actually read the thread for the perfectly good explanation. I like the Knight mates in the alternative line. Cool (worked them out for myself once I saw the first solution. It's not that hard.)

Yes indeed...

I did not find it at once, it seemed to me that the king could delay its fate but both solutions are mate in 5.

Maybe the proposed solutions should contain these variants?

 

Thank you, dntoupin

I did the first two moves in my head - still not at a point where I can see past that, though...
