# 1/16/2013 - Mate in 4

very nice

If a chess math was that easy

cool

Me parece que puede ser tambien:

1.Dc7+; Ra8

2.Db8+;TxD

3. Cc7++

OK

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

This puzzle has been up for more then a day now. Right?

again?!

Where is today's puzzle?

nice one........

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.

I was doing the puzzel and i got it in 5 sekens i think it was easy TO!!!!!!!!!!!

This is also a good puzzle

Easy one!

nice. thanks :) many ways to mate here.

yay i came bake today and THE PUZZEL WAS THE SAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
