Checkmate is forced from the first position on the worksheet called Bishop Award: Checkmate and Tactics that I give to my students. The position comes from Maczuski -- Kolisch, Paris 1864. That exercise asks students to find White's fourteenth move and the idea that girds it.

The position below is before White's move 12 in the same game. The forced checkmate is not yet on the board, but White has a winning idea.

White to move
