    No, it's not a helpmate puzzle, black wouldn't play Nxf4. Kxe6 maybe.

    Hahaha There is no mate in 2, but only mate in 3 (many) 

    Let's see Miss Qweeni2. I qoute you on that!

    We are looking here for a mate in 2 solution, not mate in three. Very difficult isn't it?

    Ah, I saw his Re1 post, but it didn't register because he didn't post a continuation and I hadn't got rid of the other piece movements by process of elimination. Actually found it independently.

    What an amazing puzzle. Impossible to believe that all of black's replies leave a mate in 1.

    2 is bxc4, no mate.

    The solution has been found.

    NxQ isn't forced.

    Bxc2 after Qc2. Look page before, the puzzle has been solved.

    Quick question:

    How do you people that solve it aren't just using a computer anyway? For example: Hiceberg is a rank beginner based on his game history, so although he could have solved it on his own, the chances are unlikely.
