    Nice puzzle. I haven't seen a pin like that in a while.

    Tomorrow, on "As the Chessboard Turns": Will Andy ever speak to David again? (I'd rather him not actually...)

    I think in a blitz game I probably would have seen the mate in 4 rather than look for the mate in 3.  Bf5+...Bd7  Bxd7+...Rxd7  Re8+...Rd8(to block) Qxd8#.  One move slower, no cool Queen Sac, but still wins by force. :-)


    Thanks!  I really like it when someone posts something more than "nice" or "first!"

    But I think Black would escape from this

    1. Bf5+    Bd7
    2. Bxd7+  Kb8!
    Now what? - here is one line, but I don't find a better one for white.
    3. Re8     Qf6
    4. Rxd8   Qxd8
    5. g3       Nf6
    6. Kg2     Qxd7
    And black is a knight up and likely to win.
