The king should take the rook not the bishop, then when black gains a queen, you push to gain your own checkmate. Not only that on move 6 black just walked right into the checkmate. Overall a poor puzzle
Unfortunately, 4.Kxg4 does not lead to mate in 7 as stipulated, e.g.1. g7+ Kh7 2. Kg5 Rf4 3. Be6 Rg4+ 4. Kxg4 Kxh6 5. g8=Q a1=Q 6. Qg5+ Kh7 7. Bf5+ Kh8 8. Qh6+ Kg8 9. Be6# Also, Black's 6...Kh7 is forced.Overall a poor analysis.
that was niiiccccceeeee
This puzzle leaves some questions ...
... most important: Why couldn't I solve it?
useless black queen
way too easy :)
Another line I looked at was
1. g7+ Kh72. Kg5 Rf43. Be6 Rf84. gxf8=Q a1=Q5. Bf5#
A really nicely balanced position, ideal for a puzzle. If this had come from a game, it would be interesting to see what blacks last few moves were, and whether they were too eager to promote, or if the position was always lost...
I sort of stumbled into solving this one after making a couple of wrong moves. I never would have got this in a real game.
really nice close call :D
Nice Puzzle....solved it though.
YeahI kinda woke up this morning at 6 o'clock, and as I looked up the comp. screen was open to this page, and it said "You have solved this problem."
