    You puzzle counts you wrong for finding a quicker mate. Both 3. Qxg6# and 3. Qf4# are faster mates than the solution given in the puzzle.

    Or even better, 2. Qxg6#.

    Queen sac is the only guaranteed mate.

    The comment you are quoting refers to the puzzle provided in post #114, not the daily puzzle.
