    They should do puzzles like this everyday - so it really tests how good you are! Far too many Sunday-like puzzles!

    the perfect end to a long week of easy puzzles!

    pretty tough, but the themes were basic

    this shouldnt even be a mate in 8. The first move for black was more of a mistake rather then a forced move. If anything it shouldve been a mate in 7 starting off with blacks mistake

    Black might have a chance if after 4. Rxd8+ he plays 4... Kh7, then after 5. Bg7+ ... Nh5 6. Rxh8+ ... Kxg6, the mating square on f6 is guarded by the knight

    What prevents Rxh6 after Bxh6+ ?


    well, then Qf6+, N take(the two rooks are on the D file now), pawn take, Kg8, Rd8+, Kh7, Ng5#

    Very nice puzzle indeed! :)

    At every puzzle there are people asking 'why isn't this or that possible?' when several people have already explained. After finishing the puzzle, I was also wondering why Rxh6 didn't work for black, but I read the comments before I asked..
