but, the king could just sink back to h8 after being attacked by the bishob and knight...
Wouldn't 4.f4 also be mate?
Heh, the first page of comments is stupid complements... 'good' 'good' 'cool' absolute nonsense.
No, the knight would take f4. :p
not technically difficult, but it does show the power of the knight and
you've got to love a pawn #!
F4 is also mate
Why doesn't the king move backward when he is in check by the bishop and knight? Seems like he could avoid the checkmate if he did.
1. Qxh7+ Kxh7 2. Nf6+ Kh8 3. Ng6#.
Kf6 - Qh7 would have been a mate in 2
1. Nxf6+ Nxf6. Black's knight then guards h7.
