    Nice. Very Interesting. :]

    surprised about the castling of white king as part of the moves...

  • #30

    missed the 6th move.

     6.Be4# looks quicker than 6.0-0 and 7.Nh2#

    instead of hpawn, could be a f4+ played with equell resolt

    Not equal. After 4.f4+ black would play 4... Kxf4.

    It's totally useless since there is a bishop on b7. It is not checkmate.

    cool

  • #38

    I think white`s 1st move knight to g5 could also be potential and lead to mate pretty quickly?

  • #39

    Love it !

    I failed the puzzle, but find my solution (and Lasker's!) of Be2+ Kg2 Rh2+ Kg1 O-O-O# to much more aesthetically pleasing!
