Computer can't find mate in 2, until I play it

petarb99

Here's the game I am talking about. Before I sacrificed my Queen, computer didn't announce mate, as soon as I made the move, computer announced mate in 1. Few moves before, computer described my knight move as good, while giving another move as "the best move", even though computer move ("the best move in the position") doesn't lead to forced checkmate and my move does. Checkmating sequence is completely forced and computer does recognizes that every move is forced (every move of my opponent is the only legal move).  On a side note, even thought I made the move that computer didn't see, computer still didn't call it a brilliant move. Brilliant move is supposed to be a move that is hard to find, this move even computer couldn't find (even thought it is a well-known move in a well-known checkmating sequence, well-known for humans at least). I have seen other posts on this platform where people posted their brilliant moves that, to me, looked like ordinary moves (obviously good moves, but nothing special or hard to find). Does anybody know what the criteria for a brilliant move is ?

Which computer didn't see the mate? The analysis engine shows mate in 6 as soon as White's 28th move and sees the rest of the moves as well.

 

 

 

The quick analysis might not see it, since it isn't as deep, but regular analysis does.

That kind of thing happens when you're wicked smaht.

I'm not seeing the problem, either. After White's blunder at move 28, the computer shows mate in 6:
