    This was a direct solution.

    A far more interesting solution is bishop takes Knight, culminating in Queen takes g4.

    If rook takes, rook check, forcing the rook back to block, then take pawn, forced queen block, queen takes queens mate.

    If King takes, QXg4+ Qf5 QXQ#.

    Not as quick, but much prettier.

    That pattern was already brought up in the last thread.  Post #62

    Okay, I missed it.  I saw a forced mate in 4 and didn't look further.  I did it before the solution puzzle and title were printed.  So I led off with 1. Bxd7+

    Black has two possible responses to 1.Bxd7+

    1) 1. ... Kxd7, 2. Qxg4+ Qf5, 3. Qxf5#
    2) 1. ... Rxd7, 2. Re8+  Rd8, 3. Qxg4+ Qf5, 4.Qxf5#
