    I'm pretty perplexed, I've only seemed to solve Bf1-c4 and it's suppose to be check in 10 moves. I'm dying to know a solution.

    Presumably its black to mate in 10 starting with Nc5+

    That's what I thought too but supposedly it's white to mate which made me more lost. It's been driving me mad not knowing the solution.

    After trying this for a long time, I figured out some aspects of the solution, for example the the distraction idea of Re1. But finally I decided to ask the computer. So I can confirm its possible for White to checkmate in 10 but I wonder if anyone is able to figure out all these moves. PM me if you want but can't find the solution.

    Thanks I couldn't of even come up with that diduction. Yeah it would be great to know if it's even possible for White to checkmate in 10. Thanks for the attempt nevertheless.
