An interesting "sub-puzzle" is what was Black's Last Move?
Assuming that Black does not normally miss one move mates, then there can only be one possible last move!
Must be bishop from b4 to a3.
We that was fun
panicked for a sec when i saw the knight move. I thought the king would take the bishop. Either way was mate in 3 I guess
it's a funny puzzle. I see a clear cut win for the black
True, but white keeps black in check until the checkmate, keeping black from making that move.
The position was made perfectly for white mate...easy.
Why wouldn't the black king or rook take the white bishop?
it would still end up the same...
It's same thing, than you have mate by Qh7 defended by the rock at h1.
this was why Black should not be given a chance. White did this by checking Black twice and then checkmate on the third move.
this is a pretty easy puzzle, since the first move must be a check, or the white King is toast.
It's no use, it's a mate in 1 either way.
Mate in 4
