Nice but incomplete, unless I am mistaken:
1. Qg3+ Kf8 (...Kxf6 2.Qg5 mate)
2. Bh6+ Rxh6
3. Qg8 mate
I thought it was obvious. Am I wrong?
wow that is slick
enjoyed this one.
Can't you do it without losing queen in same number of moves?Qg3+ Kf8 (if K x f6 then Qg5 mate)
Bh6+ Rxh6 (forced)
Nice Queen sacrifice.
good real game puzzle...
Qg8 (instead og Qh6) works too.
Interesting puzzle, thanx for sharing...

wow this sacrifice is really good...
This is a nice puzzle, but my first thought was Qg3+, which is also valid. If Kxf6, then Qg5#, so Black's best move is still Kf8. White's 2nd move is: Bh6+ and Black must respond with Rxh6. White's 3rd move is: Qg8#, so it is still Mate in 3 whether White moves Qg5+ or Qg3+.
Nice one and again, thanks to IncrediBill for his input-I'm sure it is appreciated by many.
