    Why not 4.Bxf5?

    sorry, didn't see this previous post - I think this solution delivers mate 1 move earlier

    why the fourth move is not Bishop X Bishop?  That wins immediately

  • #163

    to sookenneth :   Bishop x Bishop interferes with backup that Queen recieves from Rook.  Allows King some other moves.

    If black goes 2 ... g6. That saves the situation for black isn't it?

    It doesn't really help.  If 2...g6, then 3. Bxg6 h6 4. Qxh6+ Kg8 5. Qh7#. Mate in one less move than the puzzle solution.
