5/9/2013 - Mate in 6

  • #221

    finally I captured

    Nice queen sac in move 4 (didn't find it)! Cool

    I tried to promote pawn mate could be possible but not in 6 moves (without the queen sacrifice)! Surprised

    if I were black I would not have blocked the first check with my queen. I would moved my king to the black spot

    And you'll get mated in 5 moves as proved before:

    1 Qf3+ Kb8 2 Rc8 Rxc8 3 Qa8+!! Kxa8 4 dxc8=Q+ Bb8 5 Qc6#
    Perhaps now it's clear that 1...Qe4 2 Qxe4+ makes it a mate in 6 ... Cool

    The 3rd and 4th moves for white may be reversed. 3.Qa8+ KxQ  4.Rc8+ RxR 5.PxR(Q)+ Bb8 6. Qc6 also works. 

    No. Because after 3 Qa8+?! Kxa8 (forced) 4 Rc8+ Kb7! and now there is no mate in the next 2 moves! Wink

    but its not mate in 6, if Kc7

    If 4...Kc7 then 5. Qc8# or 5. dxc8=Q#.

    The problem with your puzzle is that after 3 Rc3 black plays 3 ..., Rd8 blocking white's attempts to checkmate.  Black should be able to win this one.

    OMG, What about a checkmate in 4, not 6:

    1. Qf3, Qe4

    2. Rc8, Rxc8

    3. dxc8=Q, Bb8

    4.Qxe4#

     

    2. Rc8 Kb7!

    for chess.com,  please make puzzle freestyle, because there are some other ways in your puzzle's for mate.

    why can't you just rook up, taken by black rook, pawn changes to queen by capturing rook, then bishop blocks, queen slides over for mate? 4 moves

    I don't understand...

    1. Rc8+ Rxc8 2. dxc8=Q+ Bb8 3. Qf3+ Qd5 4. Qxd5#

    and it is checkmate in two less moves :|


    Ah, I see it now. I had the second best combination and for some reason was thinking the King couldn't move and just allow the Rook to be taken.

    1. Rc8+ Kb7 2. Qf3+ (2. Rxd8 Qxh2#) Ka6, black has escaped.
