    BigDoggProblem was kind enough to point out to me that my previous problem was a dud. So im scatching that thread completely. I didn't check it through a program so I didnt see my flaws. Here is one that I know works.

    white to play and mate in 5

    Very simple. I'm guessing that since you cannot stop mate after Nd5 then the other 3 moves are Black's lame checks to try and stall the mate.

    Pray tell me how this is different. Does Black have more checks?

    I have dropped my nice side in favour of my darker half. Cower before my unending sarcasm and laughable hypocrisy!
