    Good puzzle. Made a couple of missteps, but it's okay.

    Yeah, two mates on the last move. hunh.

    I don't see anything wrong with 1. Bc2 Black can't take because Rh3#. Mate is unavoidable.

    What's the forced mate in four beginning with 1. Bc2?

    For those asking why 1...Bg6 or why not 1.Bc2 ?, this diagram may help:-

    {Lost the first one of these & I think 'shoopi' has beaten me to it but here it is anyway}

     

     


     

    { If you're not familiar with these diagrams, just click on the first move of an alternative sequence (the part within the (1.Bc2.. ) ) and you can then step through the moves using the buttons. }

    Yours is better because it includes ...Rg8 which is what I was thinking. Very helpful. Thanks!

    These puzzles are getting harder. But still not too hard.

    why not bishop to c2 then one of the rooks to h3 or h7?

    The last move shouldn't be in the puzzle. Two possible mates - either rook can move to the h-file.

    The one in the puzzle is the 'better' move because it claims material though. I know both moves are equal because they're both Mate, but you know what I mean.
