    Why not 3. Bh6?

    because  Ng6.

    There is a black pawn on Ng6, that would be an illegal move. ?

    Alternative solution based on a different move by black - try it out!


    Interesting try, but black has two choices on move three which avoid mate in four in your line:  3...h6 and 3...h5.

    There's actually 2 other ways to mate in 4. You can check with the night at 3:Nx37+ The absolutely only way for  black to get out of check is to take the night with the queen, and now the queen isn't protecting the black night so 4: qxn++

    Also, you can move the Bishop 3: Bh6. There's no way for black to prevent QF8++. I tried both of those, before I gave up and looked at the solution. What am I missing?
