Some of these puzzles should be sub-titled 'spot the bishop' !    

Your right,the B covered the Qb7,B was needed to mate in two!!! Would you call this a forced mate even though K had two spaces to move,but either move made it a mate?

It's surprising sometimes, just how easy it is to overlook those bishops tucked away in the corner!

Yes paulified, definitely a forced mate as long as it can be completed in a certain number of moves, then any number of different lines are o/k.

The important thing is that there's no possible defence against it.
