Clean and easy.
easy...actually this puzzle has a way to mate faster than this....
Nothing like a Saturday puzzle to make us wish it was Sunday again.
is it so...
Only got bogged down by move 4. Were the Queen not on f8, the solution for mate in 5 would be 1. g4+ fxg3 2. Ne3+ Kf4 3. Ng2 Kf3 4. Rxg3+ Ke2 and Bh5#. In this line, with Queen on f8, Bh5+ is met by 5. ... Qf3 and then 6. Bxf3 mates. All in all, this was a nice puzzle for the weekend.
I dont understand why king has to move.
Mmm I see more options
