    Very clever way to force mate against superior fire power.

     My first instinct was to move the pawn to g7 but, this wouldn't be mate in two.

     

    That was the first thing I looked at also, but it was pretty obvious that the black queen could check on the next move and check repeatedly from then on.  So (this being a puzzle),  I immediately focused on the only check move available to white at that point.  It was a sacrifice (not to be rejected off-hand when doing a puzzle), and the power of the next move was immediately evident.  Black is forced to capture the rook, and put his king in a corner, and an easy move by the white king discovers a check and blocks the black king's only escape square.  Sweet!

    Cool Nice summary, dufferps. The power of hindsight ! Fools rush in and all that.
