Coondawgg

Tough one and fun

0-0 at the end isn't the only winning combination - Rh2 or Rg1, or Bf1 or Kf1 followed by Ne5/h2# also wins.

castle_mate

Different.  Cool

Yes to all the people saying there's a quicker mate with Nxf6+ Q/Rxf6 Qxh7+ etc, you're forgetting that if black just plays ...gxf6 instead, the queen now guards h7 and there is no mate.

pretty wild!

This is nonsense! there is a 2 move solution here. Knight to f6, doesnt matter what black does to get out of check, Qxh7. Boom.

Took alittle longer than usual, good for the brain, excellent puzzle.

If you don't understand the solution, please read all the posts in the thread before asking a question that has already been answered, or as in this case, making an incorrect declaration.

That aside, this isn't a real puzzle, since there are alternate possibilities on move 6 (e.g. Kf1) that also lead to a checkmate in 7.
