    I don't see anything wrong with 1. Bc2 Black can't take because Rh3#. Mate is unavoidable.

    Good puzzle. Made a couple of missteps, but it's okay.

    What's the forced mate in four beginning with 1. Bc2?

    For those asking why 1...Bg6 or why not 1.Bc2 ?, this diagram may help:-

    {Lost the first one of these & I think 'shoopi' has beaten me to it but here it is anyway}

     

     


     

    { If you're not familiar with these diagrams, just click on the first move of an alternative sequence (the part within the (1.Bc2.. ) ) and you can then step through the moves using the buttons. }

    Yours is better because it includes ...Rg8 which is what I was thinking. Very helpful. Thanks!

    These puzzles are getting harder. But still not too hard.

    The last move shouldn't be in the puzzle. Two possible mates - either rook can move to the h-file.

    The one in the puzzle is the 'better' move because it claims material though. I know both moves are equal because they're both Mate, but you know what I mean.
