Problem ID: 0066161
It is not really a forced mate. Presumably black can play ...Ke5 and lose a stack of material instead.
no ke4 bd3#
Are we seeing the same problem? I am seeing 1...Kxc4 2. Ra4+ wins Queen. Or 1...Kd4 2. Rd5+ forces mate. But I don't see Ke5 or Ke4 as initial moves.
Or Kxc4 Qb5+ Kd4 Ra4# might be the better way of doing it. But after Kd4 Rd5+ leads to mate, and I believe this used to be the solution. Problem has probably been shortened due to multiple wins.
They are talking about Kd4 Rd5+ Ke4 Bd3#.
frankly, did not see upto mate from initial position, just saw that K x c4 can win Queen
f@king bullshie fak u
Really should play out the whole mate in 4, and definitely up the tactic level
Still I got it on luck :)
This is a forced mate, two lines:
... Kxc4 2. Qb5+ Kd4 3. Ra3#
...Kd4 2. Rd5+
which splits to
2. ... Kxc4 Qb5#
2. ... Rxd5 3. Qxd5#
2. ... Ke4 3. Rxd6+ Ke5 4. Qd5#
1.Qb5+ Kd4 2. Qc5+ Ke4 3.Nc3+ Kf3 4.Be2#
Isn't this just as good?
1. Qb5+ Kd4 2. Qc5+ Kxc5 yea?
lol, yes indeed! 2.Qc5+??? Must have been stoned.
I guessed right, but I saw the full line only later...
Mate in 3. 43s +5. On bad-enough days I could miss this.mar2016 prob avg is 67s untracking
The provided analyses is again of a very low quality, showing impossible positions where a king is attacking another king :(
I did not see mate. I had either Kxc4, winning black's Queen, or Kd4 and the chase was on.
