Problem ID: 0023252
I found the sac easy enough by didn't recognise a mating opportunity - which is of course the whole point. If I ever spot a queen sac like that, ending with a pawn delivery, I will die happy.

The revenge of the minor pieces
Awesome! To find this in a real game would be more satisfying than a smothered mate I think.
solved it and lost 20 points thank you Glicko, your normal built in grade deflation system is working well.
I believe this is from either a game or a problem of Kasparian. It certainly is a beauty.
That was crazy. Seems like problem rating should be higher.
took a while to find it but i did!
increadably cool. forced mate with a bishop, night, and pawn!
Congratulations to the 50% that got this right, unfortunately I wasn't even close!
I swear I saw the whole mating sequence correctly in my head, and then moved 2.Nd4+. Why, God, why!?
I'm really proud for having get it...
I saw the forcing combo up through 3. ... Kd4, but couldn't find a way to finish it off, so I tried something different and of course failed. 4. Kd2!!! is an amazingly beautiful intermezzo move that I absolutely never even considered. Great problem!
That is soooo sad for black
