    I'm afraid that your puzzle is incorrect as white can play either Qg7# or Qe8# for a mate in one.

    no one mentioned the alternative Re8+ Nf8 Rxf8+! Kxf8 (Kh7 Qxg7#) Qd8# yet, so I will ;-)

    Nice one. The bishop on g7 was very effective.

  • #86

    I solved this puzzle with much thinking. Nice.

  • #87

    First puzzle that I was actually able to see the entire mate before doing it.  Feels good.

  • #88

    I guess.

    Good puzzle. Got it in one but that second move really held me up.

    No-one asking why black's king doesn't take the rook on the 2nd move ? It's because it would pin the g7 pawn so that white could play:
    3.Qh6+  Kg8  4.Qxg7#


    freelunch

    Sorry 'freelunch' but after 1....Nf8,  2.Qxg7#  is the shorter route & black is supposed to frustrate white for as long as possible.

    Brilliant Tactic, using decoy, then pin and finally end with unavoidable checkmate..Cool
