nice double checks.
Youtube has it's "arrow to the knee, Thumbs up if..., press x, chuck norris, . . ." idiots. And Chess.com has it's FIRST idiots.
It's a semi-smothered mate. Not too hard for me to see, as I'm familiar with the normal smothered mate pattern.
Goes like this
Ng7+,Kf8, Nxe6+, Ke8, Qf8+, Rxf8,Ng7#
wow that queen sac was awesome. Something you'd typically overlook.
i went for the Queen and missed the beauty of the checkmate

at least not too easy.....
Smoosh in your face black! Well I would have done the same too.
Yeah the problem with 'puzzles' like this is that although the 'solution' wins the most quickly, almost any reasonable move wins. This was really 'See if you can find the prettiest win'.
This is almost exactly like the smothered mate that Philidor guy invented.
Now that was nice Way to go Guys!
