first! (just kidding)
simple mate :)
P.S.: erik, hahaha ;)
when does it start?
first page for once :D
thats so easy 5 seconds oh!
wow, finally I got first! :D
This was a direct solution.
A far more interesting solution is bishop takes Knight, culminating in Queen takes g4.
If rook takes, rook check, forcing the rook back to block, then take pawn, forced queen block, queen takes queens mate.
If King takes, QXg4+ Qf5 QXQ#.
Not as quick, but much prettier.
In a real game it would be interesting to get black into that position.
But if black moves his king its not checkmate?!
cool rook sac tnx
