    That's what makes it a difficult puzzle!

    lol...true enough

    Yeah, not even close to forced.

    My first thought is Bg7+ with Qc6 e.g. Bg7+ Kc2 Qc6+ Nc3 Bxc3 bxc3 Qa6+ and mate or winning the queen may be lurking shortly.

    But there is a forced mate, here's a computer checked version of the puzzle:

    Andy beat me to it :p

    You had to use your comp to check that?  I guess that's why it took you longer to post it than it did me. Smile

    Haha, well once I knew it wasn't forced, I stopped looking for mate, and wanted to find a way to continue attacking.  Bg7 would probably be my blitz move.  The 4 move mate is very forced though, and makes a good puzzle.  I just didn't see it.
