    very nice!

    'Difficult' for a Monday, but enjoyable. Selection of the right pawn (d4) is crucial

    Why not qxd4 or nxd4 for the second move of the blacks? With a queen sacrifice, the mat can't happend, right? (2.qxd4 3be3 3qxe4!)

    Hello, either way it would be a mate in 3 with pf4 instead of moving the bishop as you suggest. Nice puzzle.

    Each move by white forces black to move his king to his only escape square.  On the fourth move, black has no escape square.,

    Well, that's not quite true.  On second move, black could capture the checking pawn with his queen or knight, but then white would play 3.f4#; black's queen or knight takes away d4 as an escape square.
