Too easy, but a fun puzzle.
Rxg2 followed by Rg8++ cooks this puzzle.
Mother theresa's checkmates for whimps. Where's the fun? The trophies of failed martyrs?
what else is there to be done
pretty clever, I'd simply go Rxg2 but that would be mate in 3 indeed.

I like rxg2. It is more straightforward and still leads to checkmate, though it takes an additional turn. But you also get the joy of taking another queen with your rook!
well i think yesturday was a Sunday!!!!!11 Rite??

what birdbrain thought this one up? A promoted Q on G2 will check the white king, so the rook is pinned. Stoooopid - - -
I assume you mean Q on g1. Ne3 relieves the pin on the R and is the only mate in 2 solution.
hmmmm, and i thought my comments were stupid, ah well, never mind,
BIG FAT EASY
the cheat approves of this puzzle!
R takes g 2 makes it mate in3
