My first inclination was to make Nf5 my first move to be followed by Rh6#. But that would allow black to advance his pawn creating an escape square at g5.
Better to check the black king immediately with my g-pawn - and now he is forced to h4 from which there is no escape.
I love sunday!
Yeah a nice and easy first! But it is Sunday... :)
it isn't the only way it works, Nf5 and then Rh6
That was my first inclination, but 1. ... g4 opens an escape square for the black king.
I think white wins eventually (captures the bishop, and the white king is pretty well protected by pawns while the black king is quite exposed.) But it becomes an interesting game.
cant get easier than that!!!!
Nice puzzle but I also saw mate in five.
i dont get the sunday jokes.
Sunday puzzles tend to be so simple that a turnip with brain damage can solve them. However this Sunday's puzzle required two whole moves to finish. Which is unusual
1st time ive seen mate in two on sunday. its usually mate in one
enjoy your Sunday........
Sunday's moving up in the world to mate in 2.
Still too EZ.
