According to the computer I used to see how I had faired, this is actually a mate in six.Now, given that I had some assistance on this one (although I worked out most of it on my own), I will refrain from posting the solution.A good day to all.
I could only find a mate in six moves:1. Rc1+ Kb81. ... Rc7 2. Qxc7#1. ... Rc3 2. Rxc3+ is no improvement for Black2. Qb4+! Ka8 2.Qb5+ does not allow the check in the fourth move 3. Bf3+ Rxf3 Now that the rook is deflected from the e-file...4. Qe4+!! Kb84. ... Qxe4 5. Rc8#5. Qxe8+ Rd86. Qxd8#
It's nice but it's not in 5.
What kind of description of the puzzle is that? Checkmate in 5 OR 6? That means checkmate in 6!!!
