Pin and win
Very Nice - I looked at a lot of other things before I saw the easy mate in 2.
I feel this one was aptly titled, because at first glance black seemed to have such an upper hand. I started looking for a back rank attack line with my rook aimed at the e5 pawn, but it was a complete dead end. Hmmm. I really must check black on my first move. I looked at my bishop at f6. He could move 1. g7+. Another dead end, BUT it shows that the g7 pawn is pinned, and there's a strong escape for my threatened Queen. And suddenly, the easy sequence opens up to me.
Black must indeed be shocked.
too easy :)
