    At first I was looking at 1. Rxh6+, couldn't make it work, and then realized the importance of keeping a rook on the h-file the entire time, keeping the knight on h6 pinned.  For example, if 1. Rxh6+ Nxh6 2. Rg1+ Kh7 3. Bf5+, then the knight is free to play 3...Nxf5 because it is not pinned, as opposed to the puzzle solution.  Once I realized all this, I got it rather quickly.

    Very nice queen sac. I tried first with the rook, but it'd break the logic really.

    More puzzles please! :D

    It is a matter of finding the first move. The rest is forced.

    Sunday? It's Saturday!

    I'm not sure, if this is the only way to mate and to win!

    What about 1 Rcg1? With the idea of sacrificing the rook on g4 (taking the knight with check) ...

    1. Rcg1, with the immediate threat of 2. Qxh6#, looks like it ultimately works, but because it is not a check, it allows black time for stalling/defensive moves beginning with 1...Qxc2+ that should delay mate for more than four moves.
