    Some of these puzzles confound me but this seemed fairly obvious - all checking moves with mostly forced captures by black & little or no variation to speak of,  leading to a mechanical solution. Not very interesting - I'd rather be confounded.

    Can anyone tell me what "lol" means please ? - I keep seeing it in these posts.


    I'm sure someone has already answered that "lol" means "laughing out loud."

    I want to comment that your observation "this seemed fairly obvious" was very similar to my own reaction.  And yes, black's alternatives (variations) were limited and not really better than (or even as good as) the moves he chose.

    The only point I disagree on is one of personal preference: You say:
    "I'd rather be confounded."
    My preference is to have the solution within my range of comprehension.
    This puzzle left me feeling good after several days of being confounded. (lol)

    (But I did like that underpromotion to knight- was it yesterday?)
