Wow! I'm pleasantly surprised. I figured that one out on the first try. Miracles. LOL
a piece of cake !!
Most of the people think this a simple puzzle, only because they know there is Mate in 5. If you are facing such a position during a game, are you so sure you will find the mate in 5??

there is mate in three
Yeah Nice :)
Could have solved in less than 5moves. 1.Knight to e5.. 2.Bishop to e5,, 3.Bishop to f6. Any problem in this ??
How is your bishop going to take on e5 in move 2 after Black declines to take the Knight at e5.
Remember, Black is going to play his best move, he's not going to just hand you mate in 3 by taking with his pawn.
nice knight sacrifice
The point of puzzles is (usually) not to win the game; it's to achieve a given goal. In this case, that goal is mate in 5 from the given position. Either you can do it or you can't. If you can, congratulations, you've demonstrated mastery of what the puzzle is aiming to test. If you can't, you don't -- you're missing something. Determining what you're missing and working to improve on those things, that's what puzzles are for.
The whole purpose of the game is to WIN! As to finding the solution to the puzzle. Are you kidding me?! I can win this one with my eyes closed!
Removing the other pawn.
