One of those in which white is forced to check on every move, because black is poised to checkmate. Chceck by the Knight forces black king to h8, and Rook at h7 is checkmate - except that the Bishop protects h7 - Fortunately Queen can capture the protecting Bishop and check the black King on one initial sacrifice move.
So we are back to ye old Queen sacrifice solution, after which the Knight and Rook can do their thing.
easy as pie lol but you didnt really need to kill the queen
Yes. This was easy...must be queen sac month or something.
easy look for queen sack and seconed page
provide a solution where the white queen lives~
another Q sacrifice...good combination though
There was no way to win,unless you keep black in check,you are one move from being mated by black Q,you have two way's to check, Nf6 or sac your Q,being a daily puzzle you sac your Qg6+...hxQg6 2.Nf6+...Kh8,forced since you have R on 7 rank,bringing you to your mating move 3.Rh8#, Nf6 covers Rh8 and g8 the black K is done.Not very hard,looking back it look's like you could have mated in two,1.Nf6+...Kh8 2.Rh7#, black Bg6 can not take Rh7,it is pinned by Qg5,making it mate in two,am I wrong? my bad black K is on h8 not h7 which is what I was thinking,so it's mate in three,so yes I was wrong as ussual.Thank's Chess.Com.good day chess heads

Nice queen sac
That isn't mate as bxg8 is possible after the bishop captures the rook
20th i think.
First! (Usually I think the people who shout "first" are annoying, but I had to do it just once!)
