    Puzzle 1: Prepare to kick yourself if you use the 'Help' button:

    Puzzle 3: Another strange occasion...







    Puzzle 4: Black had agreed in this game to mirror whites moves. Bad choice! Mate in 4!

    Estevon, it's true that the black king can move to h5. But white can simply play Qd3 and avoid the black king run away. After Kh4/Kg4, white plays Qh3#Wink
