DEATH by ROOK!!! MEOW to all!
It's like Anastasia's Mate, except that it's a bishop on f7 rather than a knight on e7 that takes away the g6 and g8 squares as flight squares for the king.
Rook is a hero :)
I like it. Nice one.
In comment #103 RookPFeynman suggests the line:
1. g6 Nf6 2. Rxh7+ Nxh7 3. Rh1 Rf8 4. Rxh7#
However, I think black would respond1. ... h6 and make a long game of it.
1 g6? h6! and the golden opportunity of mate in 2 would have gone!
This rook sac belongs to the basics of mating! I didn't think there are so many moves to fail (1 g6? or 1 Bxd5?!). 1 Bxd5 also misses the mate in 2.
tiny bit too obvious
