    I'm sorry, but that is not checkmate.

    I think this is how one does the mate.

    How about Qd2 as the first move? the only options for black are Kc4, followed by Qa2, or Rd2, followed by Ne3

  • #11

    close but there's Nd4 there

  • #12

    Completely forgot that. Geez...

  • #13

    So, starting with Qc2. If he does Nd4, finish with c4.

     

    Oh, that's already in the solution you linked...

    1. Q-d2    N-d4  2. N-e3#

    1. Q-d2    K-c4   2. Q-a1#

    1. Q-d2    c4      2. N-e3#     Not sure, but all look good.

    Nd4 removes the pin so Ne3 Rxe3

    After Qc2, can't black just push the pawn to c4, protecting the rook?

    Qh1+ leaves him only two options, both of which are mate in one.  He can either block with the rook:

    Qh1+, Rf6, Ne6#

    or he can move the king to c4

    Qh1+, Kc4, Bf7#

     

    This sound right to you guys?

    I believe 1. Qc2 is the soltuion!

    After Kc4, Bf7+ is not mate. Black can still block with d5.
