    Here I am.  Nice puzzle.  Pretty straight forward and logical.

     

    Did Chess.com make a mistake???

    Normally in these puzzles, Black makes the best moves possible to delay the mate as long as possible.  Anyime you try to find an altrnate line for Black it usually leads to a quicker mate.

    But instead of playing 2...Kg8, if Black was to play 2...Bh6, would that not make the puzzle a Mate in 6???

    Check out this Blue alternate line for Black.  (The Red lines just show alternate moves for White and Black to show that 2...Bh6 should have been the move that Black should have played.)

    Nice job!!!

    now that was a good puzzle.  I still think that there are better puzzles to be made, but I'm content with this one for now.
