d3-a6 or d3-g6 is checkmate in one move
not too bad
why not after Qf5 ...Nxb4?
White can win in many ways here. For example 1. Qa6+ etc. 1. Qf5 is the shortest way to mate, but thre wasn´t explained, that the aim is a mate in 3. In a practical gam its not important to find the shortest way to mate in such positions.
Nice mate! Thanks for the lesson!
yep it's is SO simple
[FEN "2b1k1q1/1Pb4p/2n5/2n5/8/8/2NBBN2/4K2Q w - - 0 1"]
Can be mate at 6 move
1.Qxc6+ Nd7 2.bxc8=Q+ Ke7 3.Q6xd7+ Kf6 4.Bc3+ Kg5 5.Ne4+ Kf4 6.Qd7xd5++
This is better:
1. Rd1d3+ Kc3b4 2. c2c3+ Kb4a3 3. Rf5a5#
Good one.Please be relevant, helpful & nice!
