nice tactic but unnecessary. there's a mate in 2
The point of these puzzles is that Black makes the best moves possible.. so yeah, c7+ then black would play Rxf3 as has been said about a dozen times in this thread already.. playing Bd5 as you suggested for black would be stupid.
And Sherlock.. Blacks best reply to Qe8+ is Rxe8, not Bxe8
You're an idiot. Black would never block with the bishop, he'd take the attacking bishop.
nice one but very easy.
Queen sacrifice, again
Why not move pawn to c7. isn't it check mate.
I feel like punching my opponent in the face after losing
