Move three was puzzling. Blacks move after that was idiotic.
Starting to look forward to the Saturday puzzle - you usualy need to think a bit before you get it.
Realy tempting to grab the black queen on the first move, but we are looking for mate after all.
Notice how the management woke up to the bleeding heart problem and did some housecleaning?
tough little puzzle...
that was hard nice one.
@UK Kid - regardless of black's third move, Qd3# cannot be stopped. Brilliant puzzle.
I had so much trouble on move #3.
Didn't really like it
ahhhhhh i missed #3 move too.
I dont know how realistic that is... in a real game I would just take out the queen with the knight and take the safer mate in 6 versus a hard to see mate in 4 with a quiet move.
Didn't get move 3 at all.......
That queen is so tempting...

Move 3 is a shocker. Hard to believe black can't do anything to prevent mate next move, but his pieces block each other from effective action.
I am with the ones who were baffled at move three.
