    side note. Do people actually wait until it is exactly 3 in the morning.(or w.e their time zone) just so they could type first? can someone maybe explain to me what the satisfaction they get from it is...

    Beats me. But then, I don't get the people saying 'easy' either. Easy for you? Maybe, but is that really so interesting to the rest of the world you need to let everybody know? Easy for everyone? Nope, it's not.

    I think no one ever received applause for the great achievement of "first!" or "easy!" yet somehow they must feel better after writing it, cause otherwise this would have stopped long ago. Very puzzling comments, these puzzle comments.

    I don't hate. I just think y'all are megalomaniatic egotistic nincompoops, and you’re only still alive because natural selection was neutralized by technology, is all.

    Doesn't narural selection in a way favour the most egoistic members of species? Anyway, as it is chess we're talking I think some people don't have a life (side effect of playing chess) and are sitting in wait every night and day to jump the latest puzzle and after they' re done call out for mummy to wipe their behinds... that's the way I interpret this touch of pride implied in these "1st, 2nd, 3rd" exclamations

    Sunday? It's Saturday!

    I'm not sure, if this is the only way to mate and to win!

    What about 1 Rcg1? With the idea of sacrificing the rook on g4 (taking the knight with check) ...

    1. Rcg1, with the immediate threat of 2. Qxh6#, looks like it ultimately works, but because it is not a check, it allows black time for stalling/defensive moves beginning with 1...Qxc2+ that should delay mate for more than four moves. 

    Not at all: 2 Qxc2+ - Maybe it's not mate in 4. But the game is over anyway!

    Let's have a look at 1 Rcg1:

    Even if this means to leave out the opportunity of a very nice queen sac! Wink

    Only because it was a daily puzzle did I consider that initial Queen Sacrifice.

    Even so, I wanted to start out with Bxg4. - But then black would have a variety of options; I hadn't analysed them all.
