    In Reinfeld's 1001 Brilliant Checkmates problem 95, in the queen sac section, can't White just play

    1. Ng3+ Kh4 (forced)

    2. Nf3+ Kg4 (forced)

    3. h3#

    without any queen sacrifice?  Just checking if i missed anything, thanks.

    It would help if you would post a diagram.  My guess is the number of people that own the book AND see your post are small.

    Yes, and there is no other mate in three.

    Thanks.  It's interesting how the knights work together to hem the black king in.
