 Spot on! Completely missed 1...Rd7. Still, I guess all roads lead to the promised land!

1. Qc7+ Rd7 2. Qxd7+ Kh6 3. g5+ Kxg5 4. Qe7+ Kh6 5. Qf8+ 5. Rh4+ Qh5 (5. Qh4+ Qh5 5... Kg56. Qf4+ Kh5 7. Qh4#

Slowhare... you're missing 2. Rxd7+ in your analysis. It won't be Mate in 7.

Trust me on this one ;) 


I stand corrected. I did consider 2. Rxd7 but overlooked 3. Qf4+ and ended up with a longer chase. Thanks.

Too easy.

It's a bit easyer when you have to check after each of the moves.
