2/3/2012 - Mate in 5

RenataCFC

Missed 2.... Qxf3+ on the first try, which is what makes the double check mandatory, only saw that the knight could block.  Typical for no coffee.  :)

Like a lightning' in Jord. Heill! Odinn. Eager, impulsive, almost greedy, addicted to playing' chess.

I enjoyed it! 5 logic and forceful moves, of which 2 were delay-moves hopeless preventing mate. I like this position in the beginning of the puzzle! I W-A-N-T M-O-R-E :)

This is a mate in 2 puzzle, so why take 5 moves to complete it!!!!!!

Rb7ch! followed by Rxb6 achieves the objective in good time.....

 That's not a mate in 2 since Qxf3 gets the black king out of check.

Dearest David,

                     I don't know what to think. What we had was so special and I miss you- I'm just confused right now. I really want this to work but it's so hard sometimes. I'm torn, I really do care for you but it's just so complicated. Give me some time to think, okay?

Love you always,

                           Andy


Thanks. I needed that.. Great friday  ROFLMAO

Out of the five steps only the first three are the important ones. After that, black's rook and queen just try to delay the inevitable. I like the second move.

 

Those are the only moves black has at that point.

*Note for players:

Even though this may seem pretty simple and straight forward, White has to allways check Black's King (+), or else Black does mate in 2 moves after. Qf3+ .. Kg1 and Qg2++ checkmate.

my personal experience ;) obligates me to make this clear to all tactical end - game players..
