 Easy Checkmate? (what do you think)
Hi there

Played this game some days ago, and I have to admit that quite satisfied with forcing a mate in this position.

This is the position I want you to look at :
White to move

My opponent was black and just made the move Bf5-c2. I forced a mate and won.

I did not see whole secuence myself, I just saw that I could get the king out and that I could use my rooks, and then I figured I had good chance of mating him. I know that is not pro chess, but well I am still a beginner.

So what I would like to determine is whether you would say this is an easy mate or not?

I wouldn't call it 'easy', but Bxf7+ pretty much demands to be played in this position. Black king has a nicely laid out path to his doom.

Good one. Well done. Sac to open up the king is always scary OTB.
