One should not be too quick to judge the difficulty of a puzzle; when faced with such positions in one's own games, few actually play the winning move.

I think I would have gotten this in a game situation.  I rarely miss a check by my knight - particularly when it isn't a sacrifice move.  And I'm usually aware of what my Queen controls.  And in this case, there were no alternative moves to debate over.

EDIT--Well, looking back at it, I suppose in a game I might be focusing on that threatening black knight at d1, and might think of taking it with my queen.  but the checkmate sequence is just too obvious to ignore.
