    Why doesnt black move king on move 3?

    3...Kf8 (only legal king move) 4. Rh8#.

    what if Rg4?

    2. Rg4 is an interesting idea, but it is not forcing enough and is too slow.

    to aquatitan, if you take with pawn, it leads to checks with rooks, and takes longer.

    i don't see any check with rook if you take with pawn

    If 5. fxg3 then 5...Re2+, with at least one check to follow, delaying mate by at least one move.

    spuerchess49, post #185 is by far full of blunders! Surprised

    1 Qe6+ Bf7 2 Qg4+ Bg6 3 Rxg6+ hxg6 (3...Kf7 4 Qe6#) 4 Qxg6+ Bg7 5 Qxg7#

    we ought to recognice that crucial to achieving this result was the placement of Whte's two B on commanding diagonals.

    Amazingly, as strong as white's light squared bishop looks, it doesn't appear to have any bearing on the mating pattern for white.

    If black does something other than capture the queen on move #1, such as 1...Bf8, is it still a mate in 6?

    Perhaps it's even faster 1 Qxf4 Bf8 2 Rxh5 If now 2...gxh5 3 Qg5+ Bg7 4 Qxg7#

    After 2...Qxf4 simply 3 Rh8#

    As long as the White queen is still on the board it can be really a quick mate! Surprised

    Yes.  Thank you.  I must admit, I was being lazy and didn't feel like calculating it out.  But I should have seen that.  It really is not that difficult.  I was looking at 3. Rxh5 Bg7 and couldn't see a mate in six.  Obviously 3. Qg5+ is the move. 

    Thanks again.

    5. fxg3 allows 5...Re2+, delaying checkmate.
