pretty nice one. nice tactics. ignore the queen, fatal. take her, forced mate. nice play white :)
Why in the world did black move: 1... Bg4??
Rather than sacrafice the bishop in a meaningless delay of the threatened Rh4, why not skip the bishop move and instead proceed to the Qf8 sooner rather than later?
It would make no difference in the end, but it seems like a wasted sacrafice.
why black sacrifice in g4 at second make no sence???????????
Catch the King in corner.... ;)
Why does black move a bishop after white moves the rook?
Yeah, I still don't know why the bishop moved there...
If the title had been "Mate in 4" the same people who wrote "1...Bg4 makes no sence" would have pointed out that this "senceless move" delays the mate by one move!
The title of the puzzle is correct wether you like 1...Bg4 or not!
good one indeed.
Not so easy
watching that bishop is the key
I was stymied by the first move. Thanks for a very good puzzle.
I do not see the end in five! Moving the bishop is useless! Move the queen to F8 force an exchange! So there will not be end....yet!
Brining the bishop to a suicidal Bg4 makes zero sense on Black's behalf.
