Saw the solution quite quickly. Good deflection tactic though.
Really very good one, so instructive, thanx fo sharing...
easy... best puzzle.. one of them
Sorry, but the solution offered is wrong (see post #19) as some others have pointed out, since black is given a discretionary (non-checking) move & can play either 2...Rxg8 or 2...h4 instead of Bxe8. These delay mate until the fourth move. I think it should be:-
1.gxf4+ Kh6 this is practically forced since blocking with the bishop still results in mate in 3;1...Bg62.Rxg6+ hxg63.Qxg6#
Mate should always be in the least number of moves !
cool,congrats to the two "players" that solved it "first".amazing!
@Prativa_pralh,the puzzle is cool!
@Prativa_pralh : First of all what justify ...Kh6 ? And so if start from there, your solution is one of the worst (cf stefen_33 comment)... I don't see the point of proposing puzzles unachieved like this.
