    Another one for the less esperienced:

    White checkmates in 5 (i.e. black plays only 4). How did the game go?



    ps. SPG = Shortest Proof game, meaning the position could also be reached after a longer game.

    Well done! Your 5th move implies 5.b7xQc8=R# of course, although the position could have been with a white queen as well.
