its a litle bit easyer when you know that mat is possible (puzle mode)...
in games not a lot of players will look (and see) for this ending... i think
man...it was for kids~!
Ne7 would force a mate faster would it not? Only move for black would be to take with queen and then move rook to f6.
After doing these puzzles you begin to see patern form I knew I was giving up my Queen (again) after that it was pretty simple. Cool beanz!
Couldn't you just move the g pawn to the 7th rank and have a sooner checkmate?
Crumbs ! , took some time to solve that one !
I always have trouble finding the first move. IS there any method to get it in one try? or do you guys stare at it for a long time. Once i see the first move i can get the whole puzzle pretty fast as long as it's a mate in 4. It starts getting tricky if it's past 5-7 to me.
Didn't see that first move right away........nice puzzle
First move had me stumped, until I remembered that the first move should always be to SAC your queen. The rest falls into place.

O the satisfaction! After patzing big time (again!) in the tactics trainer today, I at least solved today's puzzle right from the bat.
