    I hate when people say, "too easy!" because sometimes they are somewhat easy, but it makes me feel like a noob. I haven't played chess in a fewmonths so im nto really good anymore ^.^ ughhh

    why not 2 Nf6?

    2.Nf6 blocks white's open f file and since it isn't a checkmate, it allows black to launch his attack by:

    2. ...Bf4+

    3.g3 Bxg3+

    4.Kg2 Qf2+

    5.Kh3 Qh2#

    Welcome to reply for any faster mates regarding this :)

    You have to find a way to checkmate with check every move. If not Black has either ...Qf4+ or ...Bf4+ (and maybe even mate or perpetual check)!

    Your right,but I do not see any perpetual check,depend's what white move's on move 1,Qd8+ never give's black a chance to get out of mate,nice job!!!

    If White blunders with 2 Nf6?? Black has at least perpetual check beginning with 2...Bf4+ indeed there is checkmate: 3 g3 Qxg3+ 4 Kh1 Qh2# (3...Bxg3+ 4 Kh1 Qf3+ 5 Kg1 Qf2+ 6 Kh1 Qh2# is also possible.) (By the way with 3...Qf2+ you'll have a perpetual check!)

    cool puzzle. I thought it was smothered mate at first.

  • #158

    sacrifice rook had to be seen before starting the sequence to do it unless done by luck
