too easy.

Qd8?  Well, no, it doesn't.

There might still be a checkmate instead of Nxa4.  Also, I think my 2... Ka7 line could be longer.

Love how the knight mated instead of the queen

Why are you analyzing the variation with 1 Qd8?

Macho_Gwapo was right with his mate in 5 (see post #17). But with your minor line it's a mate in 2: 1 Qd8 Qxa4? (Indeed 1...Qxf2 is the only way to avoid the immediate mate!) 2 Qb6#

Your line 1 Qd8 Ka7 is also shorter: 2 Qxa5# (Why giving the mate in 2 when you can do it directly?)

Why black moves Qb2 instead of b6

Black's queen is on c2 - Black cannot move Qc2-b6! It's an illegal move.

Even if Black could move his queen to b6 after 1 Qc5 (Qb6) White could either mate with 2 Nb8# or 2 Qxb6#!

I think BenjaJimenez tried to say 1..b7-b6  

right?


That's also mate in 2 by 2. Qb6#

Oh thanks, right! But please write 2 Qxb6# (because the pawn was taken ...) Wink
