5/14/2012 - Mate in 3

GmPrice

I found the mate in  4 instead, with Rook to the back rank.

Why do in 4 moves what only takes 3? BTW if they had called the puzzle mate in 4 then you would be on the right track.

difficult to discover but I like it

1.Re8+ Qxe8 2.Qc7+ Ka8 3.Qc8+ Qxc8 4.Rxc8# works too. Maybe it's longer,but it doesn't matter. And white was basically won in this position.

But then it isn't a mate in three, is it?
