    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).

    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
