White to move and mate in 5.
Just been playing around and come up with this position. It shouldn't be too hard to come up with a mate in 5. There are multiple solutions.
Presumably this isn't too interesting as a mating problem in its own right, but are there recor ...[text shortened]... ords for the highest number of initital mating moves (13 here out of 24 possible white moves)?
1...Ka7 2.Qc6 Kb8 3.Qd7 and the pawn promotes.
1...Kb8 2.Qc6 Ka7 3.g7 Kb8 4.g8Q+ Ka7 5.Qga8#
