    I did not like this puzzle. I saw mate in 3 and was mad the rest of the time.

    Instead of being mad, please show us the mate in 3! Innocent

    What would have happened if black on his fifth move had played K to g7.  Would the knight have checked him?  This would fork the king and the rook, and would be damaging for black, but it would hardly be decisive.  CAN SOME-ONE ANSWER ME PLEASE - I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW THE ANSWER!

    I think white would respond with 6.Ng5+.  Looking at the continuations after 6. ... Qxf5, 7.Rxf5,  I see that white wins.

    I'll come back and edit this as I examine other black responses to 6.Ng5+.

    EDIT:
    Whoops.  6.Ng5 is impossible/illegal. I meant 6.Nf5+

    And after trying several lines,  I am inclined to agree with darlochessenthusiast, I think black is in quite a strong position after 5....Kg7.    ----   One line:

    5. ...     Kg7,
    6. Nf5+  Kh7,
    7. Nxd4  Qxd4, (My rook is pinned.
    8. Qc7+  Kh8,
    9. Qg3    Nd4,
    10.Qh3+  Kg8,
    11.Qg3+  Qg7,
    12.Qxg7+ Kxg7,
    13.Rd2   Ne5    Too many variations to play out, but I see a draw as most likely.


    That was my reaction too; I came up with several variations where Black was doing quite well by simply going Kg7 on the first move instead of taking the bishop initially then advancing so he could get help from his Rook and Queen. 

    Of course its more than likely I missed something :)

    Anyone else notice it is the under 1,000 crowd that finds these puzzles easy and the rest of us find it difficult?
