    Can't Black's b6 Knight move to d7, then, after White's rook moves to h4, that same Knight goes to f8, backing up the vulnerable Pawn on h2.

    No. 1 Rf4 Nd7 2 Qxh7+ Kxh7 3 Rh4#

    Look back at the answers. Short 1...Bg4 means mate in 5 (as requested). 1...Qf8 is a mate in 4! That's the difference! Cool

    What if black answers the first move by g5 ? 

    1- Rf4  g5

    and black continue by

    2- ... Rg6

    I think the mate threatening dosen't exist anymore !

    What do you think?

    Take a look at the position after 1...g5.  Look for a different type of mate other than the one the puzzle demonstrates.  You should find it rather quickly.
