3 out of 3!
Tighten the noose.
After 1.Kc2, black has 2 options.
If 1. ... Kc4, then 2. Qc5#
So Black moves 1. ... Ke3.Now, 2.Qf4+ tightens the noose, Black is forced to 2. ... Ke2, and White can finish it off with 3.Qf2#
Believe it or not: this is also a MATE IN 3! Can you solve it?
1. h5+; Kh6 (If Kf6; 2. Nh7#) 2. Nxe6+; g5 (Kh7; 3. Qxg7#) 3. hxg6(en passant)#
one sided battle
1 h5+ Kh6 2 Nxe6+!! g5 3 hxg6ep# (En passant and double check FTW!!!)
Congratulations! That was a spectacular finish, wasn't it? :)
Piece of cake.
Moving 1.Kc2 really limit's black's move's to either ...Kc4, 2.Qc5#,or...Ke3, 2.Qf4+...Ke2, 3.Qf2#.Turned out to be pretty easy,just had to see what black could do.Nice to see mate before you even made your first move.Neat puzzle!!!
too easy .... get something more, not enough ......
Way too easy
