I can't find mate in 3 against 31. Re1?

There is no forced mate in 3, but more forcing than the solution given would have been Qxc5

The Queen can't be touched ... (Bxe5 Rc1+ Rf1 Rxf1#) and that leaves white nothing to do but "throw furniture in the way" in any of a large number of obviously futile ways.

Well, previous posters were right that this is not a forced mate in three, but you were right that the winning move is 1...Rxc3. Sr. Calero seemed to be on the right track. I think this is a forced mate in six:

1...Rxc3   2.Re1 Rc1  3.Rfe2 Rxe1+  4.Rxe1 Qd2  5.Re2 Qxe2  and mate on move 6

That is nice.  Of course with you not moving the queen who is threatened.  Maybe white should look before he leaps.

If you want to show us the end of one of your games, just post it as a 'sequence of moves.' There is no reason to post an incorrect puzzle. Everyone will just be confused and start posting what they think are the correct moves.

All is not lost. Qe2 will still assure a Black victory in two or three moves
