@Alcahaelas- Might want to look through the posts and see the analysis some people have done.
The puzzle teaches us that big guns and heavy artilery are not always the best option to play, and a smart infantry move can do miracles.
There is also mate in 2.
1. Rf3+ Ke4(forced) 2. Ng3#
How about Kg3+ ... and then Rf7+ ??
Good one.Please be relevant, helpful & nice!

just guessed. got it right
Mating black in the center.
Checkmate by pawn.
there is another force checkmate but in 4 move.
1.Ng3+ Kf4 2.Rf7+ Bf6 3.Rxf6+ gxf6 4.Rxf6#
Thanks, Naziri, for posting that line. I was unable to see the 1. g4+ solution; 1. Ng3 was my first choice for the opening move. I'm quite sure I would have followed with 2. Rf7+ (I was sort of oblivious to the lurking bishop and would have been surprised by 2. ... Bf6, but I think I would have seen my way through it to 4. Rxf6#)
u r welcome "dufferps"
I m glad to help u.
