wait a second......... can't the black castle?? O-O??
An excellent use of the Clearance tactic.
In response to the above post, no, black can't castle because his king is on the d8 square. So? The king starts at e8, which means it must have moved sometime before, and thus forfeited the right to castle.
1 - Rg4 Bxg4 (any other move 2-Rg8#)
2-Bb6+ nxb6 (or Rxb6 )
Nice one getting the obstacle (black bishop) away for a nice mate!
the first move is hard to find for me :(
nice puzzle anyway :D
Deflect black's pieces then win!
