uh, yea. duh
Sometimes i just like to simplify things and give up the bishop.
Simplefy? I would first cut off the king in a way that your kingt is directy participating. That means try to mate on d1 or h4 near your King. so for example.
I would try some thing like this starting with Qc5 + to not let him attack my bishop then let them work nicely together.
Bye the way you can checkmate a black king thats in the center of the board in only 5 moves with a Queen and a King. Like this.
You get a knight's jump away from the king
Rightbut a Knight jump away from the king from the other side ( of your king ) is much more handy because you so sandwich him between your king and your queen. Then he will suffocate more and the mate is more quickly. For example.
I tried using all three White pieces here and also made it mate in 7 but Nalimov comes up with an interesting improvement in your line that cuts it down to 6.
