    I did not see how you dealt with 2....Ng6.

    It's in there, hidden amongst the many lines.

    I think you must have meant after 2...g6 3. hxg6 how to deal with 3...Nxg6.  I inadvertantly did not complete the line.  It would finish 4. Qxg6+!! hxg6 (forced) 5. Rh8#.

    I would have expected something destructive. The bishop moves seemed weeaaaaaaaaaak

    Once again, why not Bg5 Qe8 Bh6? Then after ...g6 white wins the rook, whereas if it was on f6, it would not win the rook

    Yeah, Bh6 was my move too.   It looks better than Bf6 to me.  I think this puzzle has a flawed solution.

    2. Bf6 is much stronger because it attacks the h8 square from f6 and it doesn't block the h-file for white's rook on h1.  Both are essential to the success of the mating attack that develops from the many lines coming from 2. Bf6.  There will be no successful mating attack after 2. Bh6, and which is more important, the win of an exchange or the capturing of your opponent's king?

    Yeah, ok.   I see it now.   I saw that I could win the exchange, but I didn't see the mate.  Thanks, Bryan.

    nice one

    This puzzle has generated a great response.  I managed to figure out the bishop move.   White Queen well positioned.  I would rather be playing white then black in this game.   Way  back in 1888 I expect that white won.
