White #5

I know this violates all the laws of chess composition, but this my problem is great! White has only one solution. There are no side solutions in the problem. Special thanks to @ Arisktotle from chess dot com for the correction.

Thank you for trying to solve the problem! You are wrong with your first move 1. Bxc7+? Black responds with 1. ...Nb5xc7 and wins. In this chess problem, checkmate is achieved in exactly 5 moves. No more, no less. If you are interested in the solution, then I will post it here. Thanks!

That's like about 70^9 positions to search to prove that it's checkmate in exactly 5 moves... have someone done that?

Ok, my bad - to prove this is checkmate in 5 moves, only about 70^4 or approximately 24'000'000 positions in the tree (about 70 possible black moves against only one white move). 70^9 - that's the number if one wants to prove that the solution not only exists but it's also unique...
