1.Qh7+ Rxh72.Rh6# this I got in 5 seconds but 1.... Kg5 needs some time.I will see it later.
Just focused on black king position and the surrounding pieces - the rooks white queen and the supporting white bishop. The g and h files and the b1-h7 diagonal. The 'back rank' mate and 'epaulette ' mate configuration sprang up. This took 10 secs.1.Qh7+.Rxh7.2.Rg6#!But what a sec, what if black does not cooperate?1.Qh7+.Kg5! (Is there an alternate? Quickly ruled out alternate 1.Rh7+.Kg5.2.g4+.Kh4!) then the simple continuation sprang up! 2.Qxg7+.Kf/h4.3.Qg4#So, I got the solution but it took more than 45 secs!Ok. Not bad I guess, close to 60 secs.Harry
Qh7+ Kg5 Qxg7+ Kf4 Qg5#
O.K.I was busy for a while.1.Qh7+ Kg52.Qxg7+ Kf4 or Kh43.Qg5#
1. Qh7+ Kg52. Qxg7+ Kf4/h43. Qg5#Took me 48 secs. :(
1.Qh7+ Rxh7 2.Rg6++
There appear to be at least two saves for W. What I did within 45secs (probably!)was straightforward checking:1.Rh8+ Kg52.h4+ Bxh43.f4+ Kg44.Qf3#Then I put it into Stockfish andit did a mate in 3 starting with1.Qh7+Cheers0-0-0-0-0-
No computer, so I hope I didn't miss anything:1.Qh7+! Kg5 (1...Rxh7, 2.Rg6#)2.Qxg7+ Kf4/h4 3.Qg5#(after 2...Kh4 I first saw 3.Qg3+ Bxg3, 4.hxg3#, but unfortunately that's not necessary! :-) )
first to comment.1.Rh8+ Kg5 (1...Rh7 2.Qg7#)2.h4#kanayo - abuja
It's all enforced mate in 4.I spent more than 45 seconds, but at least first move is rather obvious:1. Rh8+ Kg5 (Rh7 Qf6#)2. h4+! The trick here, to deprive king of escape field h4.2. ... Bxh4 (enforced)3. f4+ Kg44. Qf3#
1. Qh7+a) Rxh7 2. Rg6 mateb) Kg5 2. Qxg7+... 1) Kh4 3. Qg5 mate... 2) Kf4 3. Qg5 mate
1. Rh8 Kg5 (if 1. … Rh7 2. Qg6#)2. h4 Bxh43. Qe3#.
Mate in 21. Rh8+ Rh72. Qg6#1. Rh8+ Kg52. h4#
1. Qxh7+! the rest is silence... ;-) 10,5 secs.
It's the very first thing I looked at.
