Admittedly I didn't feel like calculating after the final position.  I suspected checkmate was coming quick but with numerous winning options for white I just didn't feel like analyzing.

So I checked the Chess.com provided engine and saw white has forced mate by move #7.  Can you find the different lines which mate by move #7?

the question bryancfb is can you?? lol without the chess.com computer?  cheers mate!!

Had I took the time to look I am confident I would have found the key move against the stronger black defensive attempts to set up mate by move #7.  Mate would be easy to find after that.  Mates against the weaker defensive attempts, which require different ideas by white, I found while solving the puzzle.

What do you care anyway?  You haven't commented on here in years!

Why couldn't the black king just capture the the white rook on f7??

If 3...Kxf7 then 4. Qg6+ Kf8 (forced) 5. Qg8#.

Done

Chess tactic is the demolition of the pawn structure

1. Bh6+! Kh8, 2. Bxg7+!! Kxg7, 3. Rxf7+!! Kh8, 4. Qg6! Bf6!? (good try), 5. Bg8! Bf5, 6. Rh7#!
