4/13/2012 - Unusual Mating Pattern

IWishIWasSmart

interesting, but black was milti-screwed to begin with

I always prefer a queen once pawn reaches the last row. Knight was the better choice here.

looks simple, but not so easy to forsee the 3rd move in real game

Kf6 is also valid, no?

No, queen is hitting that square. Do you have your glasses on?

Nf6 would have have check-mated just as well as Rf8. Smile

what about Nhf6 after Kh8. that should be mate

stephen_33

Rf8# is the correct solution because it's in only 3 moves but I prefer the Nhf6 move - it seems more elegant.

Hmm...

I know rook to f8 works, but what's wrong with moving the knight from h7 to f6 on the last move?

Conflagration_Planet

Oh, never mind I see black could hold off mate one more move with their queen.
