    Why is the title Mate in 3?

    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.

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

  • #129

    "Mate in 3" through me off a bit.

    Why is this puzzle labled "Mate in 3?"

  • #131

    Mate in 5!

  • #132

    Mate in 5 tbh

  • #133

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

  • #134

    uh...mate in 3?

  • #135

    great one..

  • #136

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

  • #137

    fun one, even if it wasnt very hard

  • #138

    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.

  • #139

    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?
