    Nice!  I would have probably played 1.Bc3 in a real game, forcing mate in just a few moves more than is optimal.

    On a less significant tangent, I wonder if I can get my 3rd consecutive "first" on the daily puzzle tommorow!

    You're right, after Bc3 black has no significant threat or defense and Qh6 is checkmate, unless black sacrifices rook or queen (anyway, it will be just a slight delay)
