    It might be if it wasn't for the black bishop on h3.

    To easy for me.

    good one

    It doesn't make sense, why didn't the king just take the rook in the first place?

    This would take a lot of analysis to show that there isn't a faster way.

    After a quick visual calculation and I haven't read all the posts yet, I think quick mating combinational because White's knight is covering c7-square is with 1.Qxd8 Kxd8 2.Rd1+ and now one variation would be...Bd6 (better is...Bd7 variations but White still has good chances) 3.Rxd6+ Kc8 4.Re8#

    what's wrong with:

    1. Be6+ Qd7 (forced)

    2. Qxd7#

    interesting,took a blunder to make it work

    bartimolo, its not mate because there is a bishop on h3 that captures your white bishop

    This is certainly a neat puzzle.  I enjoyed it. It did take several tries for me,and at least for me, was not obvious.  Although if I was playing  black on move 5 I would have captured the Rook on d7 instead of moving to c8, which the King did eventually.  Unless I missed or overlooked something, I think he could have done so.  That threw me off.  I am sure there is a reason the King did not do so on move 5, I just don't see it at this time.  I will have to look again.  Anyone know?
