    Anyone else see   2. Ra7+    also forces a mate?

    It forces mate, but only in five moves (3. ... Ka8), whereas this solution is mate in four.

     

    Yep

    After 2:Ra7+, black has four options:
    2. ... Kc8,  3.Qxc7#
    2. ... Kb8,  3.Qxc7#
    2. ... Kb6,  3.Qxc7#
    2. ... Kxa7,  3.Qxc7+  Now black has two options:

    3. ... Ka6,  4.Ra1#
    3. ... Ka8,  4.Ra1+  Qa6, 5.Rxa6#

    Hmm played Ra7+ well it was good anyways.

  • #57

    nice:

    You have solved this problem!

    4. Rxa6# 

  • #58

    You were one move from mate,so you needed to keep black in check which was not to hard to do 1.Ra8+...Kb7, 2.Qb3+...Kxa8, 3.Ra1+...Qa6, 4.Rxa6#,every move was forced,my hardest move to find was 2.Qb3.Thank's Chess.Com,good day chess head's
