    After the first move, the puzzle is pretty straight forward, you just have to keep finding ways to keep Black in check.  (At least our Queen gets a break this time.  Interesting that it takes both a Rook and Bishop sacrifice to do the job of a Queen sacrifice.)  I like how the two pawns pull their weight.

    Since Black is on the verge of Mating White, you know that you have to keep Black in Check the whole time.  The only piece, other than your Rook, that can do that is the Bishop.  But, that road seems to lead to a dead end.

     In your alternative, why not 7. Qf5#?

    Black could have prolonged by 6... Kg8 or Kh8 however it still would end in mate.


    The Queen is pinned against the King.  White has no choice but to keep Black in perpetual check in order to force a draw.

    Why the queen have to capture the pawn f7?

    Why: 1. Rh8+ Kxh8 2. Qf8+ Kh73. Qxf7+ Kh8 4. Qf8+ Kh75. Bxg6+ Kxg6 6. Qg8#

    and not 1. Rh8+ Kxh8 2. Qf8+ Kh7 3. Bxg6+ Kxg6 4. Qg8#

    Thanks ;)


    I listed your alternate line below, and it does end in Mate.  However, that is only because you have Black playing 3...Kxg6.  The reality is that Black would capture with the pawn instead, 3...fxg6, and then your alternate line falls apart.

    Because Black would respond with 1...Qxg4#, and have Mate in one.  White has no way to get the King to safety, or prevent Black from dropping the hammer.  Every move White makes must put Black in check and keep him there until Mate or a perpetual check draw.
