    There is a line with the f pawn promotion to Knight as well. take a bit longer but is indeed beautiful:

    1. Rxf6+ gxf6 2. Nd8+ Rxd8 3. cxd8=N+!? Qxd8 4. f8=N+!? Qxf8 5. Bxd5# *

    Some of the moves are not forced but it's still mate in all lines according to Fritz

    I have felt that the exactly solution of a problem must to be.

    I played it against Rybka demo.  Mate in 22.  Easy! ;)




    NFW, don’t tell me Rybaka made a mistake?

    Per AquaMan’s example, Rybaka allegedly makes move 20. Nxe4, when the correct move is clearly 20. Qg5#; you can’t argue with checkmate.
