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+ Bxg72. Qh5+ Kg83. Bd5+ e64. Bxe6+ Nf75. 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?
