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.
