    I thought that this was the solution and failed the puzzle because of it. I can't figure out how black could do anything differently except for 3. ...Kf8 , which just results in a checkmate on move 4: Qf7#

    That looks good to me - even better than the "solution" in that white doesn't sacrifice his queen and in fact takes black's queen.

    I didn't even see it, probably because the knight at h6, smothered mate is such a familiar classic play.

    I saw Yeewassup's mate in 5.  But I learned about "smother" mates.  Thanks.

    Don't worry, sir. Yeewassup's mate is actually the superior mate: no queen sacrifice, and either white captures black's queen for free OR checkmate actually occurs on move 4 of the sequence--faster than the smother mate.

    that's what I thought too. Besides, losing a queen doesn't feel good :P

    Don't know... The title just gives it away. It is just forced (for white) to check right away. Qd6+ is the only safe way to do so (any other white move is loosing for him/her), and the rest is easy. I didn't bother to see the combination, just checked.

    Black can do Kf8 instead of Kh8 in you version ^^

    It´s a double in solution, but i think the expected theme is the phillidor mate.

    And then Qf7 mate in four. Superior checkmate.

    After I have first seen this motif, I started searching for sacrifices to achieve such a mate. Has not worked yet, but I love this mate :)
