Good day; bonne journée.
i guess the win is assumed
wow, I really love these puzzles
Why did the black queen not take on d7?
Every move had a threat. If black moves here either checkmate or royal fork, thus the second option was always chosen for the King to run to the safest square. Eventually he was coralled into a Royal fork anyway.

in effect if the queen take the pawn the queen is lost for the double of horse...........is more hard but the black have a loosing position...anyway
i love a knight fork on a king & queen. It just feels plain good.
Another Good one to show the destructive power of the knights...
