# Mate in 3 Puzzle (Quite Hard)

What if the black pawn takes the horse instead of the elephant ?

2. @TheErasec says:

So frustrating… I couldn't solve it and came back to look at the solution. It's great. Spoiler hint: Very similar to the Murphy problem, where the king is squeezed and you have to bang on that.
