    Nice puzzle.

    easy baby...

    My first inclination was to make Nf5 my first move to be followed by Rh6#.  But that would allow black to advance his pawn creating an escape square at g5.

    Better to check the black king immediately with my g-pawn - and now he is forced to h4 from which there is no escape.

    That was my first inclination, but 1. ... g4 opens an escape square for the black king.

    I think white wins eventually (captures the bishop, and the white king is pretty well protected by pawns while the black king is quite exposed.)  But it becomes an interesting game.

    i dont get the sunday jokes.


    Sunday puzzles tend to be so simple that a turnip with brain damage can solve them. However this Sunday's puzzle required two whole moves to finish. Which is unusual
