    So...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?


    On replaying this puzzle (when I came on to do the Sunday puzzle and this was still on the screen), I too was surprised when I realized that the 4.Bf6 left the King at g4 completely unprotected.  What an inviting trap! 
    4. ... Kxg4, 5.Nd4 (or Nh4) discovered checkmate.

    Be wary of the lure of a double check (5.Ne5+?)for that leaves the f5 square open for the black king's escape.

     Jacob30 is like a traffic accident.  So horrifying, but you can't help looking at it.

    One of the better comments this morning that I have received, however, the only traffic accidents I have been in were not my fault I settled out of court and won money as opposed to going into court and winning thousands and quite possibly landing the other party in jail once for DUI if that is what the punishment for that is.

    Like many others, I went astray at move 4 & played Nh4 but overlooked e5 - still mate but in 10 moves.  Lots of discussion on this one - some of it is even intelligent.Wink
