    Puzzle 1: Prepare to kick yourself if you use the 'Help' button:

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Puzzle 2: I'll give you a hint on this next one, the first promotion is a knight, you'll see why!

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Puzzle 3: Another strange occasion...

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Puzzle 4: Black had agreed in this game to mirror whites moves. Bad choice! Mate in 4!

    Yes, well pointed out, just shows how silly black was to agree to copy everything white did! Wink

    Estevon, it's true that the black king can move to h5. But white can simply play Qd3 and avoid the black king run away. After Kh4/Kg4, white plays Qh3#Wink

    the 4th puzzle was quite silly, why wouldn't the black bishop take the white queen
