    Smothered mate! Please tell me if I spelled "Smothered" right or wrong. Thank you.

    that was classic, I first saw that mating scheme in a book by Yasser Seirawan written back in the 1990's

    usually these puzzles are well thought out, but i seem to see another mate in 5, is there anything wrong with:

     

    not saying that this puzzle isn't well thought out

    Sometimes, there's a lot of ways to checkmate the king in a puzzle. But if you make your own puzzle in this site, you can't make two possible moves in one turn.

    All too easy

    I have seen this one before.

  • #254

    Easy!

    I'm finally starting to be able to see this immediately.

  • #257

    I like smoothered mate puzzles

  • #258

    wow so awesome, first i thought oh noo... smart!

  • #259

    I think this works too:

    1. Qe6+ Kh8 2. Nf7+ Kg8 3. Nd8+ Kh8 4. Qe8+ Qf8 5. Qxf8#

    *and you don't sacrifice your queen this way

    -oh, everyone else already noticed the second solution, so nevermind...
