that was a bit silly, there is a much easier mate.

ke6x, no matter what black does it is mate in the next move.

suppose black knight takes e6, then queen to h8 mate

if pawn takes our knight, then queen takes black knight mate

if king moves to the right then queen takes knight on g7 mate

 

am i missing something?

If white plays Ne6+ wouldn't black simply play Kxe7 ?

the first move was kind of hard, but the other moves are kind of easy.

Because the black king simply moves to g7 & then what?

True i missed that. But then,  move the queen from C5 to F8. Mate. I think there is no other move. Faster than the given solution.
