a few of the moves here seriously confuse me, especially 4.Bf6 which appears to allow Kxg4 (I see White can fork the queen afterwards, but it's hard to see how White can get a mate). Can anyone who understands this better then me put together an analysis with other lines detailed?
See Post #2 on Page 1
it was a nice sacrifice
Extremely hard puzzle.
After 4.Bf6, the threat is 5.Rg5+ Kh6 6.Bg7#.
If 4...Kxg4 then 5.Nh4#. That should clear up a lot of questions.
Another Queen sacrifice
i wasn't first because i was with a girl
Best. Post. Ever.
@dailypuzzle From where do you take all these puzzles?
A BIT TOO DRAWN OUT FOR ME..
that was a good one
I thought all the moves had to be forcing moves in these puzzles. Why would black play 4...Bh2+ instead of any other move? Please, show me why I'm wrong.

ooh i was stuck with that but i think i get it now i think its cause then it would go 5. Rg5 Kh6 6. Bg7# tho they delayed checkmate by moving their bishop on the 4th move. well i assume this is why they moved their bishop
Complicated, but nice
stuck on why queen doesn't take castle before check. oh and rook seems to move to the arbitrary Bf6. i'm sure there is an explanation. anyone?
