With so many ways to force mate the queen sac is not something one would normally think about in this situation. 1. Ng6+ Kh7 2 Nxf8+ Kh8 3. Qg6 ... and black has nothing to stop mate only delay for a move by giving away queen with a check.
Bh6, gxh6, Qh6#..much simpler way isn't it?
gxh6 is not forced (Kh7, or Qxg2 giving black some defense... extends the game, at least).
cool and easy puzzle
WOW. That is unexpected. Not so simple to me. For other players below, maybe. This puzzle does make me want to reconsider how carefully I look at lines after sacrifices.
Qxh6+ gxh6 Bc3+ Kh7 Bg6#. I need help we did not find the move.

Nice! I would have probably played 1.Bc3 in a real game, forcing mate in just a few moves more than is optimal.
On a less significant tangent, I wonder if I can get my 3rd consecutive "first" on the daily puzzle tommorow!
Great one! Easy though, because everything is forced, you just need to find that sacrifice.
what is life? #deep
I'm sorry Izach and Jobandeep
Queeen sacrifice cool
Again the queen dies for "King and Country" !!

Hey this puzzle's pretty new.
Another mate in 4 (forcing):
1. Ng6+ Kh7
2. Nxf8+ Kh8
3. Qxh6+ gxh6
I played 1. Bc3 Can anyone explain what is wrong with that move? 1. Bc3 Qe1+ 2. Kxe1 ... 3. Qxh6# Of course, it is not so pretty as a Queen sac know...
2...Kh7 slows down mate.
I dont think the queen had to die. You can play
In this line, white has the quicker 2. Qxh6#.
Many of these puzzles are just plain stupid. The object is to win, not win in the fewest moves, or in some move than an amateur cannot see. This is a prime example. The knight to G6 takes the rook, and the king is in check. It's just a couple of moves till the game is over. I guarantee you the average player can win this game faster than it takes to try to figure out what these clowns want in white's next move.
