  • #121

    Why is the title Mate in 3?

  • #122

    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.

  • #124

    pulled this motiff off in live chess....elegant !

  • #125

    EASY

  • #126

    Seen this before

  • #127

    Very misleading title.... how on earth is this a mate in 3?

  • #128

    "Mate in 3" through me off a bit.

  • #129

    Why is this puzzle labled "Mate in 3?"

  • #130

    Mate in 5!

  • #131

    Mate in 5 tbh

  • #132

    Yeah it's mate in 5. I could've sworn we have seen this daily puzzle more than once too...

  • #133

    uh...mate in 3?

  • #134

    great one..

  • #135

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

  • #136

    fun one, even if it wasnt very hard

  • #137

    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.

  • #138

    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.

  • #139

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

  • #140

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