If black's 1st move is Q-f8, doesn't that stop all this nonsense! What do I not see?

1 Rf4 Qf8 2 Qxh7+ Kxh7 3 Rh4+ Qh6 4 Rxh6# What does 1...Qf8 stop?

pretty nice one. nice tactics. ignore the queen, fatal. take her, forced mate. nice play white :)

Why in the world did black move: 1... Bg4??


Rather than sacrafice the bishop in a meaningless delay of the threatened Rh4, why not skip the bishop move and instead proceed to the  Qf8 sooner rather than later?

It would make no difference in the end, but it seems like a wasted sacrafice.

Why does black move a bishop after white moves the rook?

Ballofwhacks

Yeah, I still don't know why the bishop moved there...

If the title had been "Mate in 4" the same people who wrote "1...Bg4 makes no sence" would have pointed out that this "senceless move" delays the mate by one move! Laughing

The title of the puzzle is correct wether you like 1...Bg4 or not!
