    Easy!

    easy!

    I'm not sure that even qualifies as a puzzle.

    Could have been mate in 3 if the attack started with the Bishop instead of the Queen.

    Ha-ha! Easy to know where the Queen has got to be in order to mate Black's King! Tongue out

    I blundered, initially, wanted to move 1. Bb5+.  White will win, but not in four moves.


    In a way it would be fun to make your bishop a war hero, but let the war persist. You could give it a ceremony and proper burial in between moves. (Actually it could be either bishop, 1.Bb5+ Nc6, 2.Bxc6+ Ke7 (2..Qd7, 3.Bxd7+), 3.Bxg5+ Kd6, 4.Bxd8)

    Good alternate line by the way.
