The puzzle is changing. Before this puzzle it is mate in three, now the title didn't change, but the puzzle change.

You can see the first page telling the pawn power, telling it use pawn.

Nice Morphy's mate, sadly they never work in actual games... at least for me.

gourmat

wrong solution, its a steelmate in 3 like we have seen a thousand thimes, but the solution is mate in 5...

I suppose that after the third move the smothered mate pattern is just automatic...though I suspect that the first-pagers are talking about a different problem than the one I got.

Name of the puzzle- Mate in 3.

Actual puzzle- Mate in 5.

What gives? I was driving myself crazy trying to figure out how there could possibly be a mate on move 3.

Why does the title say Mate in 3 when it takes 5 moves to achieve the smothered mate?

MrL

Mate in 3 takes 5 moves according to the puzzle????

Easy but not a mate in 3 as the title claims.
