    The smothered mate is a much more pleasing option :P

    very good puzzle.

    nice puzzle. I love the mates in 4+. 

    I was also looking for the smothered mate. haha Anytime there is a knight around that corner it is a good idea to have that idea. :)

    Even if I was presented with this mate in a game, I would completely ignore it for the rare opportunity to get a Philodore's mate!

    Know what you mean... think I would play Kc8 as black out of spite! Cool
