I thought it would be smothered mate.

Yes, so did I at first; however, smother mate would have taken 5 moves.

4 moves instead of 5.

More aestetic :D I opted for this one too ^^

Even though I saw both...I'd take the extra move for a smother mate in a real game. Even if I had .5 seconds on the clock. I play chess to have fun. Smother mates are fun =P.

The puzzle would have been better with the rook on C8, after NC7+, RXN is met with QD8+ followed by mate or KB8; NA6+ double check, RA8, QB8+, RXQ and NC7++
