Wouldn't 4.f4 also be mate?
Heh, the first page of comments is stupid complements... 'good' 'good' 'cool' absolute nonsense.
No, the knight would take f4. :p
not technically difficult, but it does show the power of the knight and
you've got to love a pawn #!
F4 is also mate
Why doesn't the king move backward when he is in check by the bishop and knight? Seems like he could avoid the checkmate if he did.
1. Qxh7+ Kxh7 2. Nf6+ Kh8 3. Ng6#.
Kf6 - Qh7 would have been a mate in 2
1. Nxf6+ Nxf6. Black's knight then guards h7.
easy .... just keep throwing checks ....
