Six Mates From Skeeter The New No1.

To celebrate skeeter hitting the No1 spot.

Players Tables

I thought I'd give 6 Skeeter mates for you to find.
Three with White and three with Black.
All very simple and ego boosting. (except No.6 which is simply crazy).

No1 skeeter - ouroboros RHP 2004
We start with a nice easy-peasy one
White mates in 3. (not 4 or 5..Mate in 3).

No2. skeeter - gutsiman RHP 2009
White to play.

Again I need the mate in 3. Not 4 or 5 moves. 3 moves.

No.3 skeeter - Leaadas RHP 2008
White to play. Mate in 3.

No.4 neldo - skeeter RHP 2003
Black to play Mate in 4

No.5 Qwike - skeeter THP 2007
Black to play and mate in 4.

No.6 Macroman - Skeeter 2010
This one is by far the easiest. Black to play and mate in two.

I have included it because skeeter missed it!
(And yet mated in two.)
Look at solution No.6 and see what happened. Jesus wept.

    Hi Gerrit.

    I do say Kxd6 is the best move in the note.

    Black just played on in auto-pilot without really
    looking at the position.

    No6: after Qd6 comes Kxd6; better Qc5+

    In No2. 1.Qxd6+ Ke8 2.Re1+ Ne5 makes the mate just
    that one move longer. Mate in 4 not mate in 3.

    It was the Queen sac I wanted you to find.

    For No.2, I also got 2.Re1+. But I have to admit, the queen sac is far more entertaining.

    For No.2 it looks like 2.Re1+ also works. Or doesn't it?
