Ahhh.... I missed that too. I was thinking of Willyswinner's solution.

The pg8N move was also an obvious "classic puzzle" move, but the (wrong) solution above just seemed so much more straight-forward.

It took me way to long to work out why 1. Rh6 isn't checkmate.  I thought I was losing my mind for a minute there.  Good lord.  Coffee!

That said, the actual solution is forcing in all kinds of interesting ways that never seem to turn up in my games.

1 ... Kg7+ is discovered check. Read post #5.

Nope - After 1 R - h6+,  1 ...  k x g7  uncovers a rook check on the white king which must be dealt with.
