    With so many ways to force mate the queen sac is not something one would normally think about in this situation.  1. Ng6+ Kh7 2 Nxf8+ Kh8 3. Qg6 ... and black has nothing to stop mate only delay for a move by giving away queen with a check.

    Bh6, gxh6, Qh6#..much simpler way isn't it?

    gxh6 is not forced (Kh7, or Qxg2 giving black some defense... extends the game, at least).

    WOW. That is unexpected. Not so simple to me. For other players below, maybe. This puzzle does make me want to reconsider how carefully I look at lines after sacrifices.

    I played 1. Bc3 Can anyone explain what is wrong with that move? 1. Bc3 Qe1+ 2. Kxe1 ... 3. Qxh6# Of course, it is not so pretty as a Queen sac  know...

    2...Kh7 slows down mate.

    Same result and the lady keeps her dignity :)

    In this line, white has the quicker 2. Qxh6#.

    Many of these puzzles are just plain stupid.   The object is to win, not win in the fewest moves, or in some move than an amateur cannot see.   This is a prime example.  The knight to G6 takes the rook, and the king is in check.   It's just a couple of moves till the game is over.   I guarantee you the average player can win this game faster than it takes to try to figure out what these clowns want in white's next move.

    Of course. Sacrifice the queen, just as the person who makes these puzzles must do in every game of chess they play.

    1. Bxh6 fails to checkmate in three.  If 1. Bxh6 Qd1+ 2. Kxd1 then 2...g6, no mate next move.
