2/4/2012 - Mate in 4

sighbeerguy

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?

@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

I would have taken the qyueen with the knight on move 3.

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.

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.
