This puzzle is very difficult, but it isn't unsolvable. May the force be with you!
I brought that from one of my chess books. Wait for more!
Good One. But could I give you some notes about it or not?
Am I missing something? Why can't black capture the bishop on the 13th move?
He can! (White should still have forced mate, though)
White can afford to lose a piece or two and still have forced mate. That's why I don't like this sort of puzzle.
If black takes on f2 it's mate in 7.
I failed your problem because I found a mate in five.
It's mate in five!!!
You should probably check these with an engine.
