    I absolutely agree with Jam35.  I don't know why any player would play H7 over F7.

    To big of a risk, sacraficing the Q in hopes that he uses H7 and not F7 to capture the Q. The whole move depends on opening up the H file.

    F7 cannot take Q as it is pinned by B on C4.

    Rxh7 followed by Qxg6 also works, I believe.

    Bishop on C4 would kill the king if you moved the pawn on F7

    I have noticed that the puzzel was just like one I had in tacticts trainer and one of the stories on the front page from just a few months ago, so for me it was easy

    easy, but the queen sac is dumb because black can always just thwart it.

    Nice problem.  Always strange to sac the queen though.

    Thanks.

    B to F6 also works as the first move before White Q takes G6 pawn

    How do you figure that?

    1. Bf6      Qxg4,  now what?
    2. Qxg6+  Qxg6,  and the attack is busted.
