The smothered mate is better :)
cool puzzle! im not very good,so i like to train on easier ones
why not smothered mate?
Poor king... No way out...
I thought it would've been smothered mate, but I was wrong, no queen sacrifice.
Ah nevermind, I got why it's mate in four.
smothered sooo automatic ... but wrong here
Another interesting one.
I guess I wanted to do the same thing as everyone else and do a smothered mate.
That was so easy it was dumb!!!!!!!!!!
in a real game I would make it smothered... chess is fun too...
Wow! FINALLY my dumb ### got it on the dirst try :)
