    Couldn't you get mate in 4 with Bd5 instead of king e1?

    If 4. Bd5+ then 4...Ke2 or 4...e4.

    On move 4.I played Rxg3+ Ke2. 5.Bh5+ Qf3. and 6.Bxh3#  White's 4.Kf1 was the move of a Master.  The puzzle was a true lesson for a student studying chess.

    Isn't the first move a flaw?! How can the pawn take the other one, it is parralell to it!


    En passant - Google "Laws of Chess". Briefly, when a pawn advances two squares (and only then), an enemy pawn that could have taken it on the square it passed over (and no other unit) is allowed to do so in response (and only then).


    Thank you. :)

    Cry Thought I'd cracked this in a few minutes - when will I learn ? Got the first two moves then I played 3.Rg4  Kf3   4.Bh5 ...!  it seemed good at the time. Like many people I just couldn't see 4.Kf1 - do we have 'King blindness' when it comes to using that piece as part of the attack ?

      The en passant in the first move was a novelty - has that been done in a puzzle before ?  It all made this a brilliant puzzle & I feel I've learnt something from this one so the frustration was worth it.


     Surprising how many don't seem to know about the En Passant rule. Click on Learn/Basic Rules... to find out - it's a really good resource.

    Regards..

    That's much better than the easy puzzles.
