Good point.

Isn't it mate in 4?

1.Nf7+..Kg8 , 2.Nh6++..Kf8 , 3.Qg8+..Qxg8 , 4.Nf7#

Is it just my browser, or do yours load mate in 52?

 

P.S. - To all the people who couldn't get the working puzzle, here it is: http://www.chess.com/forum/view/daily-puzzles/5122012---mate-in-5

I think 4 ..Qxf7 means it isn't mate and leaves white in trouble. 

I see  

1.Nf7+..Kg8 , 2.Nd8+..Kh8 3.Qe8+..Ng8 4.Qxg8..Kg8 5.Re8#

Yeah, I'm having some issues with this one as well. I have two boards and one 1/2 works but after the first move the computer doesn't respond. Puzzle seems relatively simple.

cool puzzle had to solve it mentally. Figured the checkmate finisihed with the rook. The knights moves were obviously going to be instrumental tosetting up the rook mate.

It's not working on my comptuer with either google chrome or IE.

I see  

1.Nf7+..Kg8 , 2.Nd8+..Kh8 3.Qe8+..Ng8 4.Qxg8..Kg8 5.Re8#

1. Nf7+ Kg8 2. Nh6+ Kf8 3. Qf7#.

1. Nf7+ Kg8 2. Nd8+ Kh8 3. Qe8+ Ng8 4. Nf7#.

1. Nf7+ Kg8 2. Nd8+ Kh8 3. Qe8+ Nxe8 4. Rxe8+ Bf8 5. Rxf8#.

With best defense by black it is a checkmate in five.

On 1. Nf7+ Kg8 2. Nd8+ Kh8 3. Qe8+ Ng8, if 4. Qxg8+ then 4...Kxg8 5. Re8+ is not checkmate because of 5...Bf8.  No checkmate.

Thanks.  I missed the Bf8 block which extends mine to mate in 6.

I don't understand your first line.  After 2. Nh6+, black would play Kh8 not Kf8.

Your last line looks right:

1. Nf7+ Kg8 2. Nd8+ Kh8 3. Qe8+ Nxe8 4. Rxe8+ Bf8 5. Rxf8#.

My 2...Kf8 line was a correction of the GabrielBedard line you responded to, although I'm sure it was supposed to read 2...Kh8.  Sorry for the confusion.

No, 1.Nf7+..Kg8 , 2.Nh6++..Kh8 , 3.Qg8+???..Qxg8 , 4.Nf7+??? Qxf7
