to easy - first try
excuse my humble knowledge but why does black has to take the bishop in the second move ????
bishop x h6 is a mistake dont u agree ??
After 2.Bh6 Black can't pass because White is threatening 3.Qh8#! and the bishop can't take on h8 because of the pin. This confused me too.
The second move from black is unnecessary. since rook in g7 protecting the g7 bishop no need to attck(Bxh6). black can move any other movement and it wont go in checkmte.
1. Ne6+1... Bxe62. Bh62... Bxh6(This move is unnecessary from black. else it wont go to the check mate)
Simple, but not too easy...
tricky at first
one of the few 'harder' ones i actually got right! Just had to move his own then his opponent's pieces out of the way.
first puzzle I solved. second i've tried. this one was not that hard. three moves, interested.
