    Sunday? It's Saturday!

    I'm not sure, if this is the only way to mate and to win!

    What about 1 Rcg1? With the idea of sacrificing the rook on g4 (taking the knight with check) ...

    1. Rcg1, with the immediate threat of 2. Qxh6#, looks like it ultimately works, but because it is not a check, it allows black time for stalling/defensive moves beginning with 1...Qxc2+ that should delay mate for more than four moves. 

    Not at all: 2 Qxc2+ - Maybe it's not mate in 4. But the game is over anyway!

    Only because it was a daily puzzle did I consider that initial Queen Sacrifice.

    Even so, I wanted to start out with Bxg4. - But then black would have a variety of options; I hadn't analysed them all.

    Great Puzzel! The comments or at least some of them could be toned down a bit.   Calilleach -do you honestly beleive in natural selection?  You have got to be kidding.  Are you an accident? I am a created human by the hands of God!  You have to have a whole lot more faith to believe in that Natural Selection junk.
