    Instead of winning the Queen, the real opportunity is Mate in 9:

    1. Bg7+ Bxg7 2. Qh5+ Kg8 3. Bd5+ e6 4. Bxe6+ Nf7 5.Qxf7+! Kh7 6. Qh5+ Bh6 7. Rf7+ Kh8 8. Qxh6+ Kg8 9.Rf1#

    Wouldn't the puzzle solution be better though, because not only does it win the queen, but it mates one move quicker???

    I haven't seen if anybody got mate in 6.  The puzzle went as normal, but would not let me make (what would be) my last move; as follows:
    1.  Bg7+  Bxg7
    2.  Qh5+  Kg8
    3.  Bd5+  e6
    4.  Bxe6+ Nf7
    5.  Rxf7  Qe8(?)
    6.  Rf8 # (with a double check, and no where to go).
      the rook move checks the king, blocks the black queen, and discovers check by the bishop.

    What about the simple black response 6...Kxf8?
