I believe this is known as a "smothered mate." It appears frequently in chess puzzle books.

Or are the titles and puzzle mixed up?

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.

There is a mate in 3 just not showed here on this puzzle,...

PEOPLE IT IS NOT A MATE IN THREE. IF YOU PLAY THE QUEEN SAC TOO EARLY HE JUST TAKES IT WITH THE KING AND IT'S OVER. YOU LOSE.
