Sorry Shoopi. 1.Bc2 is almost correct and to every move black does, white follows with mate. However, black can defend this with: 1.Gf1!!.
But thank you for trying .

Haha I see now, 1... Gf1 breaks communication with the rook, allowing the g1 knight to be captured.
Hmm, I don't seem to find a defence for black against the straight-forward 1. Bxb1 though. The threat is 2. Ge4#, if 1... Rxg4 2. Gxh3# or 1... Gd5 2. Nf2#. Am I missing something?
For the fairy mate in 2:Bxb1 threatening Ge4# and Nf3#
Is this the answer?
Edit:Looks like shoopi got it before me
Now you have it shoopi and Frankwho. 1.Bxb1 is the answer. Threadning 2.Ge4#, 2.Nf2#, 2.Gc6# and 2.Gxh3# and.
Congratulations for both of you. This was a very hard puzzle so good job.
Stay tuned for more puzzles
