So Easy really...
Nice easy puzzle
I was blindsided. I was so into the smothered mate pattern that I failed to consider any alternatives.
I thought it would be smothered mate.
Thanks for the lesson!
Ah well, good one.
Not as efficient, but prettier is smothered mate:
1. Qd6+ Ka8
2.Nc7+ Kb8 3.Na6+ (double check) Ka8
other way: 1. Qd6+ Ka8 2. Nc7+ Kb8 3. Na6+ Ka8 4. Qb8+! Rxb8 5. Kc7#
I think you mean 5. Nc7# :)
