Glad you guys like it! Took if from one of my games (though I didn't get the opportunity to execute the full mate lol)
Both are acceptable paths, it's not a perfect "mate" puzzle, sorry.
You should not call it a Mate in 9 unless you are sure you can do it against every black defense.
Actually, it is a mate in 9 against any defence (according to Stockfish).
Yes 4.Rg4+ is much better. The game is over much faster
The line looked unconvincing to me. But Houdini confirms it is #9. I stand corrected.
I understand your concerns BigDoggProblem, and that's why I check my mate puzzles with an engine before I post them, just to be sure :P
