nice tactic but unnecessary. there's a mate in 2
The point of these puzzles is that Black makes the best moves possible.. so yeah, c7+ then black would play Rxf3 as has been said about a dozen times in this thread already.. playing Bd5 as you suggested for black would be stupid.
And Sherlock.. Blacks best reply to Qe8+ is Rxe8, not Bxe8
You're an idiot. Black would never block with the bishop, he'd take the attacking bishop.
nice one but very easy.
