    1.Bxc3 bxc3.

    Don't forget- it's mate in 7 not White to play and win.

    1.Bd2? Kg8

    2.Bxc3? bxc3.

    3.Nf6+ Kf8.

    What is your plan?

    Maybe bd2 is answered with kg8... although bxc3 seems to work

    Puzzle no 4:

    1. Bd2, cxd2

    2. Nf6 d1=Q

    3. Rh7#

    Mate in 3, or am I missing something?

    1. Don't look at it then.

    2. You're not.

    3. You used Fritz or you just tried, tried and tried (e.t.c.) for hours.

    1. That picture is disturbing

    2. When are you going to get 5/6 pawns 'doubled' (or shall I say stacked) up in a game.

    3. Solved 1,2,3 + 5 :P

    If you count solved as TRIAL+ERROR, then it's NOT SOLVED.

    'Solved' + Trial and Error = Not Solved.Laughing This may be harsh but if you're allowed to guess then you can just guess everything and 'solve' every puzzle.

    I got most of #4 on my own, basically solved #1, just about solved #2...
