Nice, but it's not "mate in 3" as it states... rather "mate in 5"....

ErikDavis

More like Mate in 5

S-E-D

It was easy!

It took me a while to figure out the "third move" because i though it was my last and I could figure out a check-mate with just that "last move" but then I realised I still had one left ^.^ and it became oh so easy =P

It was nice but not "Mate in 3", it was "Mate in 5"!

The chess.com fav of closing the king off and mating w/ knight came into suspicion after the first two moves, but the title, "Mate in 3" through that tatic off. It all added up as inevitablity as the problem progressed.

Why is it called a mate in 3?  It took 5 moves.

Title is misleading! Mate in 3 is impossible... I tried, and tried and tried. And eventually had to look at the answer. For those of you that want to try and solve it without looking at the answer the actual solution is MATE IN 5
