    Am I missing something when I say that we could have also had a check-mate in two moves?

    the last move could also be Qa7, or am I missing something?

    Yes, 5 Qxa7+ Qa6 isn't mate! Surprised

    Great puzzle.  Needed help on the second move, but otherwise I was able to get after the king/

    Very sneaky puzzle! (The solution button is my new best friend) Smile

    Why not move queen to b7 early on. She's backed up by the bishop. If you could move the knight to a different spot in the first move and bait them into taking it, you would have an easier mate in 2. Just a thought.

I know because I was once looking for the same thing. And when he found me, he told me I wasn’t really looking for him. I was looking for an answer. It’s the question that drives us. It’s the question that brought you here. You know the question, just as I did.
