Your puzzle is incorrect. Bxf5? Qxf5+ and black can draw by perpetual.
You are mistaken. After Qxf5+ the white King can simply escape to e7 and the black Queen can't do a perpetual check! Take a look at it!
There's nothing wrong with this puzzle!
Why not Ra2+Qxa2. Qb4+ and done and that is in 2 moves!?
sorry to fast a post. it´s not in two cos of kings diagonal.
Are you Garry Kasparov to say it's easy?!
This is not even easy for me too..... He might also be Anand.
Ah yes, Ke7 would escape the perpetual and still lead to a mate in 4, I checked myself.
Also, it actually was a pretty easy puzzle >.> I solved it correctly the first time (I didn't see QxBf5 for whatever reason).
That wasn't so hard...
Only 2 moves- 1. Ra2 Qa2 2. Qb4 mate
think first mate... your queen and king is in the same diagonal... after Qa2 you can not put your Q on b4...
and 1. Ra2 Qa2, 2. Qb4# fails because it leads to the White Queen being pinned
opps you are right. silly me.
Not that hard.
Mate in two! Ra2#, QxR, Qb4 mate .... no?
Perhaps this wasn't particularly hard for some but it isn't that obvious either - it held me up for long enough. That first move seemed improbable to me since black can then capture the bishop & check white. It takes time to realize that it isn't disastrous & white still always mates in 4.
So, not easy but a decent puzzle.
