The Double Check is one of the most powerful tactic's of all tactics! With the pawn move on g4# The Checkmate looks like a David and Goliath Checkmate pattern! Thanks for the puzzle. Great lesson!
Pretty formulaic until the last move - that's what makes this stand out for me. I kept looking for some way to move the Bishop, give discovered check & cover the escape sqares but it's impossible. That's when the pawn move/mate suddenly hit me. It's not obvious to mate with a pawn - I don't think I ever have.
Solved at first attempt (pawn mate).
