Thanks for the lesson.

Really nice mating combination.  Hard to find the first move but then it falls into place easily.

tough but nice

The knight sac everyone is talking about doesnt work, because it does force black to take the knight. THe king simply moves to h4 and whites attack is weakend. with the queen there the pawn to e4 is the only move black can make where the game doesnt end immedietly.

First, but so easy

Good puzzle !  I definitely would hesitate to kill my queen in a match like this, but it works !

Puzzle strategy no. one: always look for the queen sac.

Think taking with the knight works just as well

Nice, but in a real game with a short time limit I would definitely do Nxf4 first and then Qd5, as someone already mentioned. It's just as much of a guaranteed mate, but far less damaging if you after starting the sequence you realize you overlooked something - which can easily happen in a blitz game.
