Tricky one ! Needs quite a lot of thought but while 4...Re6 appears to be a mistake, 4...fxe4 is no good as an alternative...
4... fxe4 5. Bh5+ Kh7 6. Bxf7+ Qh3 7. Rxh3# (5...Kh6 has the same outcome)
That was the reason behind 4...Re6 - to provide a blocking piece after the discovered check with 6.Bxf7 but then White was able to play the alternative of Rh8. Very nice & took me a while to grasp that!
The foresight shown in this is very impressive
thanks for that, makes sense!
@westbrook77777 and PT_morgan:
I have posted a comment to "your debate" It is impossible for me to see, that CPT_morgan was condescending. It is a fact, that you can only improve by studying themes, tactical frames and so on. If not, you will stay where you are. The puzzles on chess.com are realistic. If you can't solve one, look at the solution and ask if nessesary.
quite difficult one...
