    Yep, I too think with pawn f6 black can escape.

    did i mis something because it looked like the knight could just take the queen

    why didn't the rook take the knight and why didn't the knight take the queen?

    rook mates....i'm trying to figure out if black can avoid mate by pf6 or/g6
    fairly sure everything works out for white. PAWN MOVES WILL ALLOW BLACK AN ESCAPE THOUGH LOSE MATERIAL.

    Excellent combination of tactics. I have solved this puzzle.

    as several have pointed out, an early move by black to f6 would have allowed him to escape; doubt if most GMs would miss it.

    What am I missing? I think black would have captured the knight with the rook or knight making this simply a knight give away and not a move that leads to mate. But like I started out saying, what am I missing?

    This one was tough.

    I think some of the posters here are off their medications. Just because YOU don't understand the nuances doesn't make the puzzle stupid.
