Those long bishops... like police cars behind the bushes.

Surprised nobody mentioned this: you can also play bishop on second move, black has to block with knight or pawn and follow up with knight to C6 for mate.

I saw two ways to do it, for the second turn, c1 to g5

Nice puzzle, B-N5 check does not work for mate in three.

Bg5 is followed by pawn to f3. If Nc6 then Kf2. It becomes Mate in 4, not Mate in 3.

Yeah, you're right. It's not Mate in 4. I didn't look into it before I made that joke. My mistake. Smile
