not a thrilling one...
Why does black play Bf8 after white plays Qe8+? Why not Kh7?
also could be Qg8#
You are right,Qg8 is a mate to.Good find
No, it's not. 4... Ng7 blocks it.
The first move was a natural choice - one I would make in a game. But I didn't expect my opponent to hand me his black-squares bishop and a path to checkmate in response. I expercted 1. ... Kh7, and I don't see a checkmate from there. In a game, I would probably take the bishop at c8, but I'll look further for a mating line.
EDIT: Oh, now I see it: 1. ... Kh7, 2.g6#
Ng7 block's Qg8#,it looked good,untill someone found Ng7,so don't feel bad your not the only one to miss it
Good puzzle - not at all obvious ! Shows the power of two knights
