Sunday chess puzzle: Super easy Mate in 3

Chess news and chess trivia blog (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2010

Hello everyone,

Hope you're checking out all the great puzzle videos we have on ranging from easy ones to the difficult ones. Right now here is a super easy Mate in 3 with White to move. Super easy so that you can feel happy instead of spending the night nagging yourself that you couldn't get it. Enjoy. You can run the flashplayer after your thinking time to check if you were right.

And, don't cheat. We have means of detecting all the people who run the solution without thinking first.

White to play

P.S. If you didn't get it relax. You must have been tired. Lots more puzzles to follow.

    Listen, there's no way you guys could no if I ran the solution before thinking unless you have a computer program in place that measures the time elapsed between opening of the page and clicking of the flashplayer. Come on even then I may not have thought. Stop kidding.
