White to move, mate in 6
Got there eventually
Didn't really understand all the moves.
chess puzzle 9993
I would have had mate in 4 moves, not 6, like sicknero I did not understand why all the moves?
I agree it was a lot of moves
Eyeball, were you thinking along the lines of this:
1. Bxg6 e5
2. Bxe5 Nf6
3. Bh7+ Rxh7
There's no mate at that point. If it's something else, just put it in as an alternative solution.
Pardon but do not understand all technical stuff you have shown Bxg6 e5?? what is that?
Moved Queen to h8, King has to move to f7, then I would have moved Queen to h7, then he would have had to move Knight or Bishop to block check by going to g7, then I would have moved Bishop from d3 to g6.
It would have depended upon whether he moved Knight or Bishop re if he had anywhere else to move, if moved Knight he would be checkmated as nowhere for King to move. If he had moved Bishop then next move would have been Queen to h8 again.
Is that what you said?
Not really what I said, but I see what you're trying.
Unfortunately if he moves the bishop to block then you can't move your queen back to h8, or it'll be captured.
