And if the king moves to g6 instead then the pawn finishes the job..
3... Kg6 4. f5#
Not complicated but still a good puzzle
this was rather fun
All forced move's,once you saced Rxh6+...Kxh6,now you were able to use your Q to mate, 2.Qg5+...Kh7, 3.Qh4+...Nh5, 4.Qxh5#,the B on e6 made the mate possible,nice puzzle!!! Going back at move 3,Qh4+ black could have moved to Kg6,but then f6 by white was mate,so it was not all forced move's,but you still got mate in 4.Thank's for whoever spotted that.
I was wondering what happens if 1...gxh6 and then I realized it comes a beautiful queen sacrifice: 2.Qg8+ Nxg8 for a great mate with the two bishops: 3.Bf5#. Two sacrifice variants, excellent problem !!
Very good Puzzel!

I think you mean 2...Nxg8 3.Bf5# ?, because 2...Kxg8 would be an illegal move!
ok check mate .
Who needs the rook, anyway? Sacked again.
In the black's third move it didnt put the king to g6. He used the knight to cover... Why?
Good day ; bonne journée.
It's not bad
