For me it was tough for a Sunday puzzle.  White Queen is vulnerable; threatened by black queen.  So the whole point is to use double check to clear black's h-pawn. Then return the knight to shield the Queen at h5.


I wanted to move 2.Bg8+, expecting black to capture the Bishop with a rook, then
3. Nf7#,   But Black wouldn't capture the bishop with the rook.  Capturing with the Knight, he would be able to interpose the knight at h6.  And moving Kh8 would also completely destroy white's attack.
(2. Bg8+ Kh8, 3. Nf7+ Kxg8, 4. Qh8+ Kxf7.)

I thought sunday puzzles are supposed to be hard, because people have nothing better to do?

Still, it's a very nice mate and I'd be proud to have it one of my games. :)

Easy but great puzzle. Liked the discovered check tactic.
