    I like the banter about continuing the attack, would have been helpful if that was added to the puzzle, after all it is Sunday and we do have time to think,,..

    Others may have pointed this out, but:
    1. ...       Kh8
    2. Qxf8+  Ng8  (2, Qxf8 was not mate)

    Someone else   (icfseth) pointed out that
    1. ...    Ng6  protects against 2. Qxf8

    i do believe there is a forced mate/smothered mate with 1.Qxf7 Kh8, 2. Qxf8 Ng8 3. Nf7# and if black holds on by playing Neg6 but then white does h6 and its lights out for black


    But it wasn't 1.Qxf7 - it was 1.Qxe7, and black has better responses than 1....Kh8
