Mighty fine.

The bishop/rook mating position seems faily common in these puzzles but I seldom use it in my games.  Probably one of the reasons I am not a better player!

jeff_chess

good one.   think moving the bishop first would be equally effective.

I like these puzzles that involve giving up your queen because that thought never accures to me in a game so it causes a new train of thought.

B to F6 also works as the first move before White Q takes G6 pawn

I think ...d5 means this does not work.  This unpins the f pawn and makes the queen sac useless.

When in doubt, sac the queen.

Too true.

Looked at this puzzle for a few minutes this morning and could not get started,

Then ! - I remembered that this was Chess.com....

So I tried trashing my Queen as quickly as possible,

and gee-whiz, wadda-ya-know, the mate immediatly fell into place.
