    i didnt get the point of the puzzle. was it just for white to get on an advantage?

    there where no mates, only one mate threatning that black easily blocked out.

    thaks for the puzzle E-Kuko. daily puzzle was great but shouldn't they put something that says what the goal of the puzzle is? I couldn't solve this one because I thought the goal is to mate black

    There's no way left to defend the knight on c6. I'm not sure if the bishop has to go to e1 specifically though.


     It does. Otherwise 1. ...    Nd4    2. Bxb7    Rxc1+    3. Kg2    Rxh1


    Bd2 works as well, Rxc1 is still check, but doesnt win the queen. Of course after Nd4 black follows Bxc1 with Nxe2+ for the fork, but if the king moves to g2/h2 the white queen defends the bishop on c1 and white still maintains a decisive material advantage.

    what about qd4 first and then rxd4 bxb7 winning the rook?

    1....Bf6 2....Qh4

    If 1. Bf6 then where's the mate on 1...Rh8?

    I originally thought 4. Bd2 was correct as it looks natural because it defends the rook on c1, but then after finding the correct answer I figured out why 4. Be1 is the only correct move.  If 4. Bd2 Qd7!  Then if 5. Bxc6 Qxd2 and black immediately recovers his piece.  If 5. Rxc6 Rd8 which double attacks the bishop on d5 and sets up a skewer on the bishop on d2.  The rook cannot defend d5 due to black's bishop on f8.  If 6. e4 then 6...fe.  It looks like white's best might be 6. Bxf7+ Qxf7, recovering his pawn and leaving material equal.
