Not that hard people.
good but hard
Very subtle - I've been solving these puzzles for a few months & this has to have been the most testing so far ! (some are far too easy) Is it cheating to 'test' moves because my "Incorrect Moves" count has gone through the roof with this one ?
P.S. - As a very new member, can anyone tell me who sets these puzzles ? The setter of this one deserves a prize.

COOL BUT NOT COOL
You know chess is simple. Knight takes Queen. Play the point and position system.
3 pawns too far away. Black rook powerless. White controls...wittle black down...
Wasn't sure about move 3... Hard but good.
Whittle my son. Unless by "wittle" you are intending to reder him witless.
This was a tough one for me. I would have been hard pressed not to take the Queen.
Why take the Queen when you can take the King and win the game with: 1.Bf5+ Kd5 2.Qh1 Kc4 3.Qb1!! (Double exclaimation) ...Bb4 4.Qd3# Checkmate. Nice lesson. Thank you!
The first move is Knight taking the black Queen at a7 in anyreal world game. Sometimes these hypotheticals are too hypothetical.
es indeed @Gar
yes move 3 is very tricky
FIRST, to check the solution.
pretty hard for me, being a chess noob and all, but it was only the last 2 moves that really got me because they weren't forced checks/moves. stimulating puzzle.
First two moves were easy, but the third was the difficult one.
