There is a mate in 9 possible ... but my program found a mate in 11.
This is the line so you can check later:

Ne4+ fxe4 Qe3+ Kf1 Rxh2 Rxg7+ Kxg7 Qe5+ f6 Qe7+ Kg6 Qxf6+ Kxf6 e5+ Kg6 e6 Qf2#

Ah oui, c'est vrai. Mais nous en Pays Bas apprenons English, Français et Deutsch
en école ;) And we have television in all those languages with the original
sound and often subtitles (sous-titrage). But my English & German are a lot
better than my French, mostly because I don't like their tv-programs much (no
offense meant) :)
