Rather straight forward.

was wondering why it took as much as 6 - but i suppose black drags it out - to be sure.

Nice puzzle. Takes a while to notice but the King really has nowhere to go!

nice

Why does the white rook have to take the queen? Couldn't white simply have mated by taking the pawn on h7?

I was completely lost on this one, eventually I tried every possible move until I had exhausted all possibilities...except the right one.  Great puzzle.
