We have recently published the 5 Hardest Mate-in-2 Ever, this problem set is a continuation of that series. Since some of the solvers were complaining that the mates-in-2 were to easy we decided to increase a difficulty level by a bit and compiled a list of these 5 great compositions.

Give your brain a workout, give it a try!
