Last!!! Just once I wanted to post this.
One of those problems with more than one answer.
If a chess math was that easy
Me parece que puede ser tambien:
Of course the most beautifull way, is to not hit the rook but do 3.Ka6-Ka8 4.Qb8-Rxb8 5Kc7 MATE!
Would have looked better as a smother mate!!! Instead of Knight taking rook, Na6(double check), If King goes to c8 it's mate with queen at c7, So King moves to the corner at a8, then Qb8+ Rxb8 And smother mate with Knight mating at c7
2... RxD. No bueno.
This puzzle has been up for more then a day now. Right?
Where is today's puzzle?
Mate in 4 - nice!
ok, I had a different variation I think would work
1. Qd6+ Ka8
2. Nc7+ Kb8
then I was thinking
3. Na6+ (double check from knight and queen)
if Kc8, 4. Qc7#
if Ka8, 4. Qb8# Rxb8 Nc7#
to deliver smothered mate...I guess best play is one extra move though, it would be could if these tactics would let you play out less than best play against the computer
There's mate in 3: Qd6, Qb8 & Nc7.
