Here is a position I reached in a live game today. The puzzle is very easy, at least the first move is very easy to find, but the variations make it interesting. White can force a win of at least six points of material in a number of different ways. EDIT: "Set Begin" and "Set Focus" don't seem to work. Just click "Solution" on the puzzle and go to the move 14. ... Nd8?? On the movelist. The rest of the game is nothing special.
The game ended here, but the mate in five after the resignation is another puzzle! Black has two main options.
Black's better option (mate in five):
Black's inferior option (Mate in three):
Seconded! Very cool!
For anybody very perceptive, I made a mistake with 10. Bc3?. What should black have done?
Thirded very very cool. I gotta say I really liked your notation and working through the other options as well.
