Is this not checkmate in three aftet 1. R1f7?
White isn't threatened by a storm of nasty checks, so you can seriously consider making a not-so-quiet move.Nice stock mate also.
1. Rg8+ Kh6 2. Rf7 Rd4+ 3. cxd4 Bf5 4. Rh7+ Bxh7 5. Nf7#
Thank you VERY MUCH for including the position in FEN format!! Look forward to it in all future puzzles.
I think this is more realistic than my previous `solution'.1.R1f7Be62.Rf6+Kg73.R8f7+Kg84.Rg6+Kh85.Rh7#
1. R1-f7!! Bf5 forced to protect h72. Rg8+....Kh63. Rh7++...Bxh74. Nf7#!! Black can only prolong by playing 1.....Rd4+2. cxd.....Bf53. Rg8+....Kh64. Rh7+!!..Bxh75. Nf7#!!! Other first moves for black without check allow white to mate in 3 with 2. Rg8+ and 3. Rh7#Harry
1. R1f7! Rc7 What else against the plan Rg8 and Rh7#.2. Rg8+! Of course it gains tempo to play this before Rxc7.2. ... Kh73. Rxc7 Bd7 (I struggled the most to find Bd7!)4. Rxd7 a1=Q or any5. Rh7#
1. Rf1-f7 Rc72. Rg8+ Kh63. Rh7+ Rxh74. Nf7++This must be wrong since its mate in 4
It is called a mate in 5 for a reason. 1.R1f7 is a mate in six since black and make a sacrificial delay on the first move with Rf6 and Rd4.1.Rg8 is the correct solution's first move.
