Often times, puzzles will be double-edged; both sides have serious threats and you must find the most forcing line to ensure that your opponent doesn't get the better of you. In today's daily puzzle, both sides have serious threats against each other's king. White has smothered mate ideas while black has ideas of dominating the 2nd rank and attacking the king.

Luckily for black, it's her move. Black must find the most time-effective way to deliver a final blow. There's no time for slow attacks!

 

Remember, when both sides have serious attacking chances, you must find the most forcing way to win. In today's puzzle that looked like: check, check, check, check, mate.
