MeTristan's assessment - "Not hard. Typical (insert day of the week here) puzzle."

Difficulty Rating: Medium

Tactics Involved:

*Decoy

*Deflection

1. Qg7 (Decoying the queen to g7, while also deflecting it away from protecting the c7 square.)

1. ...Qxg7 (There are other choices too, but either lose the queen or be mated too. 1. ...Qf6 2. Nc7+ is similar to the main line.)

2. Nc7+ (Forcing the King behind his line of pawns.)

2. ...Kf8 (Now that the Queen is away from protecting the square, the King must move.)

3. Rd8# (A brilliant back rank mate.)

Yesterday's puzzle will live on in folklore legend for all eternity.  They'll be talking about if long after the first apocalypse.
