Mate in #8 :D

[d] 4k3/8/8/1p1p1p1p/pPpPpPpP/P1P1P1P1/8/RNBQKBNR w KQ - 0 1

If it's too hard, try this

[d] 4k3/8/8/1p1p1p1p/pPpPpPpP/P1P1P1P1/8/3QKB2 w - - 0 1
Minic is finding f1c4 more or less immediately but has trouble with the continuation ...

You can also try this one for more zugzwang

[d] 4k3/8/8/1p1p1p1p/pPpPpPpP/P1P1P1P1/8/3RKB2 w - - 0 1

Weiss solves all 3 fairly quickly, going for Bxc4 almost instantly and announcing the correct mate after 25 seconds for the first one, faster for the others.

Ethereal starts with Nh3 and finds a mate in 10 there, before the mate in 8 from Bxc4 at 20s.

SF11 finds it in 5 seconds.

Which depth to see this 3 sac mate in  #5

[d] r2q1r2/3b1p2/2nbp1k1/5NP1/1ppP1P2/1p4Q1/PBPP4/2KR3R w - - 4 24

Minic needs only depth 16 (seldepth 38)
This position has two solutions. Both Rh6 and Qg4 lead to mate in 5.

24.Rh6+ Kxf5 25.Qh3+ Ke4 26.Re1+ Kxf4 27.Rf1+ Kxg5 28.Qh5#
24.Qg4 Rh8 25.Rh6+ Rxh6 26.gxh6+ Qg5 27.Qxg5+ Kh7 28.Qg7#

Myrddin on 8 cores (yay new machine!) says mate in 9 in 3 seconds - but doesn't see Mate in 8 in a reasonable time.

From my list of test positions:

The fastest your engine will ever find mate in 7:
[D]7k/3b3p/1p6/3p1P1P/2p3r1/2P1R3/7r/2RK4 b - -

Mate in 9:
[D]5r2/pb3p1k/1pn3p1/2p1PP2/8/b2RQ3/qP4PP/5R1K w - -

An easy mate in 10:
[D]3R4/2r5/6rp/2k5/p1p2p1P/P1Rp1P2/1P6/5K2 b - -

A not quite as easy mate in 10:
[D]6rk/5r1p/Q2p4/P2Pbpq1/NP3p1n/R1P1pP2/6PP/3B2RK b - -

Finding Rh8 is easy, but announcing mate in 16?:
[D]3rrk2/1bnqppb1/p2p2p1/1p1P2P1/1p2PP1R/2NQBN2/1PP2K2/7R w - -

Mate in...? I ran SF on it (no tbs) and at depth 70 it still hadn't announced mate. I'm curious if somebody with tbs and good hardware can check it.
