this was a nice one ...thanks :)
I solved it in my head after looking at the title. I had originally thought it was a quicker mate, but after seeing it was a mate in six I realized my mistake and solved it correctly.
O brothers, there are several observations about this checkmate :
1 - There is no doubt that the king's opponent is very open and exposed.
2 - All black squares around the king's opponent is very weak, so the four moves from the six moves were on the black squares, and because the opponent in this position has nothing to block or offset this weakness in the black squares by possession white the move and thus of the initiative, this is the main cause of paralysis opponent's pieces and the main reason for this checkmate.
Look to ( if you want ):
Somehow I missed the third move, didn't realize the pawn could be taken.
why do people post rubbish like this?
Why don't you say somethting sensible like 29th ?
