Perhaps you'll get some 'takers' if you give the number of moves ?

But I've been looking at this & all i've found are problems !

Wow part12, it took you 8 days to respond to that !  Is there any chance  you could keep a closer eye on your own submitted puzzles please ?

Nice analysis - really ??   That's the most passive defense of a threatened position by Black I've ever seen (#33). Surely, Black's priority must be to castle the king, so after 1.O-O-O, 1...Be7 is the logical move - capturing the knight is just a mistake.

When you have one open file reaching down to the side of your exposed king, you don't open another one ! There are too many moves where Black is shown as making the worst choices.

And anyway, part12 states that the solution to this puzzle is in 6 moves or less !

I'm amazed - who was his opponent ? I feel sure Black could have defended against that attack.

Also, you did state that it was mate in 6 moves not 7 as Frankwho shows !
