P.S. I dont like it. Black just blunders after the bishop move.
Same. That wasn't the brightest move
Which move are you referring to? I don't see how Black can avoid mate.
Presumably the black queen's suicide.
Of course you can hardly blame her considering what's coming despite something like a 22-point material advantage.
Hmmm. Nice. Does it matter if I put the bishop on f7 or e8?
Nobody else has answered this but it has to be 3.Bf7 so that the black king's escape square of g8 is covered - e8 doesn't accomplish that !
I actually got this in one ....
I found that one easy.
Love it. Keep forcing the moves! These puzzles drive me crazy, but they are all a learning experience and that's what I need. I'm addicted to them!!!

After 1. Be2, Black should not take the bait (1 ...Qxe2). The Black Queen needs to keep covering g7 to prevent immediate checkmate. Then Black, having a significant material advantage, just needs to be careful. 1 ...Ne4 is not too bad, threatening g5.
I am one of those annoying types who make "Easy" and "Yawn" comments often.
But I am here every day, it is now part my mornings - sit down with a cup of coffee and do the Chess.com puzzle. I like the routine.
And now GOOGLE wants to dump this site by the end of March (!?)
GOOGLE wants to know what you think.
GOOGLE wants your imput.
GOOGLE has a 'FEEDBACK' button at the bottom of there page, right beside the Chess.com square.
Chess-heads, let GOOGLE know that they are being slightly retarded.
good on for sure
Oh sorry we are talking about different puzzles. I didn't see the other puzzle posted and assumed you were discussing the original puzzle.
