11/13/2013 - Mate in 5

  • #201

    I think 3. Qxe8+ Kxe8. 4. Raf1 also forces mate. Just doesn't have the spectacular Queen sac.

    2. Rg6 or 2. Rh6 looks promising, but (for example)

    2. Rh6 Qb6+ 3. Kf1 c6 4. f8=Q+ Kc7 5. Qxe7+ Kb8 6. Bxc8

    ... and so on. White is great, of course, but it's not mate in 5.

    I prefer 4. Rg6+ Kf8 5. Rg8#. Without horsie check is a better solution.

    Why not this?

    4. Rg6+ Kf8 5. Rg8#

    I agree with previous comment.  It seems easier. Although Nd5+ is stronger, it doesn't matter after checkmate. :) I think the 1st line is a human choice and the 2nd line is a computer choice.

    4. Rf7#

    I know the title says mate in 5, but that is because the player didn't see mate in 4

    rf7 is not mate because of kxe6
