The knight sac everyone is talking about doesnt work, because it does force black to take the knight. THe king simply moves to h4

Rg4, mate in 2, in that case. Black must take the knight.

Brilliant queen sacrifice! How did black's king end up in the center? Still, unpreventable

2.Qd5+ Kh4 [.. g5 3.Qxg5#]
3. Qg5+ Kh3
4. Qg3#

More complex, but works.

4. Qg3+ fxQ

It's no form to black be free from that mate if black don't take the Queen?
