I got the 2nd move right I'm not sure about the first one though
The first move is to remove black's threat to the e2 bishop.
THIS DOES NOT LEAD TO MATE IT'S AN EXCHANGE OF PIECES!!!!
THIS DID NOT LEAD TO MATE!!
I don't get this puzzle... Can somebody tell me why pond didn't take Q on d4 on the 2nd move -or why Q traded for a K instead of R?
Basically, if the queen takes the rook there will be nothing left to take the knight, whereas when the queen takes the knight the bishop will be able to take the rook.
Alrigty! So it's about learning to prioritise! If you miss the right sequence, you miss the next big thing, ok!

After all the simplifications, White should be winning. Wondering though if 2...PxQ would have been better for Black?
