    You can be first if you want 'willmac 12'.  But you're going to have to get up very early in the morning.

    It was...interesting.

    I found that you could have just taken the Queen, couldn't you, with the Bishop?

    Also you could have checkmated before...

    No, the bishop at e8 is pinned in place by the rook at d8 !

    In your "more obvious and forcing variation", after 2 Qf7+, black plays 2...,Qxf7.  There's nothing forcing about it.

    I like how everyone else keeps reposting the puzzle with different variations.  While it's helpful to see that there would be many ways to win if this were a real game, the goal of the puzzle is to find the only line that checkmates in three moves.
