if I was playing black, when rook moved to c2 I would have taken it with my knight.  Even if I made the same move with the knight to g4, when the rook came over to h2 I would have had another opportunity to take it with my knight rather than taking the pawn with the king

1. If 1... Nxc2?? then 2. Bg2#.

2. If 2... Nxh2?? then 3. Bg2#.

EDIT:sorry, knight can't take h2 because Bg2+ wins. not Bf5.

A good puzzle, a bit difficult for a beginner like me. I needed help for the two first movements , but after that i was able to solve the puzzle by myself . Thanks for the explanation about the knight on e3 ;)

If Bf5+ Black can postpone to mate in 7:

So 1. Rc2+ is the fastest mate.

Very good puzzle.  Got the first and second move correct, but needed help on the third.
