what happens if 1.Bf6+ Kg8 2.
• 13 months ago · Quote · #62

What fun --- after 3.Qe7

if 3. ... Rxf4, then 4. Qg7#
if 3. ... Rg7,  then 4. Bxe5+ dxe5, 5.Qxe5+ Qf6, 6.Qxf6+ Rg7, 7.Qxg7#
if 3. ... exf4, then 4. Qg7#  or 4. Qxf8#
if 3. ... Q sacrifices at g3 or g2 or h1 or f2  it will be an easy checkmate for white.

In your line 3...Qxf4 (the most delaying move for the inevitable) allows immediate 4. Qg7#.

The line i was looking at for a while was...

1 Bf6+...R or Qxf6

2Qxf6+...remainding Q or Rxf6

3Rxb8+...Q or Rf8

5Rxf8#

Which is a good line in that situation though the black king has a chance to escape on...

1bf6+...Kg8

In that position i still think white is better but does provide an out for the black king.

I mistakenly thought 1. Bf4 was the answer because I had thought it saved time by not exchanging rooks first.  I now see that 1. Bf4 Rxb1 2. Qe7, while threatening to checkmate, allows 2...Rxf1+.  However after 3. Kxf1 Qxd3+ 4. Kg1 black shortly runs out of checks and will then be checkmated.  So it appears 1. Bf4 works also but takes longer.  Please feel free to correct me if I am wrong.
