 That's as good a move as Nxd1

MrStixBC, that's not a legal move

 Not sure what he's saying. Although the mate pattern itself is a classic, i set the rest of the positions.

Bxg5 is not a legal move as the black king is in double check with the white bishop and rook so therefore must move. and i dont know whether pedro made this puzzle but i extremely doubt it as his puzzles are ridiculously dumb and this one is not.
