|White to move. This is a difficult puzzle. I don\'t even have an idea on how to go about it when I first saw this puzzle. Good luck!|
Solution next week April 11, 2014.

|A scenario |

|I think your on the right track extopian.I don\'t know the answer but instead of 3.Qe5+ we should try 3.Bf6+Kh7 4.Qg5 when it looks promising for white.Lets look into it and see what we can come up with.Well done.||-|
|3 cc1422628567||2014-04-06 15:37:13|
4.Qg5 and black cannot prevent 5.Qh4+ e.g.
Black\'s best chance appears to be
4......e5 but it loses to
7.Qh5+ Kg8 (7....Rh6 8.Qf7++)

|Can you do it blindfold?||-|
|5 cc1422628553||2014-04-07 05:08:58|
and 4.Qh6 is terminal
There is still the niggly
1...Knc2 which made me think
the Queen has to move first.
|6 cc1422628567||2014-04-07 10:37:00|
|I think that answer lies in |
|7 cc1422628553||2014-04-07 11:42:55|
|The h pawn doesn`t have to take the knight.|
Ugh, it`s tricky
|8 cc1422628567||2014-04-07 13:34:17|
|Your right it doesn\'t but|
2.Qf4 Qd7 loses to
5.Rg3+Kf7 (....Kf8 6.Qh6+ Qg7 7.Qxg7++)

|My...my... You\'re all very good tacticians!!! Maybe much better than me (gulp). You guys hit the solution right on the head! |
In order to destroy the fianchettoed bishop and get control over all the dark squares, White sacrificed a whole rook:
If 3...Kg8 4.Qh6 with advantage.
If 4.Bd5 exd5 5.Qh3+ Kg8 6. Qh8+ Kf7 7.Qg7+ Ke6 8.Re1+ Kd6 9.Be5+ Rxe5 10.Qxe5+ Kd7 11.Qe7#
5.Qh4+ is also winning after 5...Kg8 6.Qh8+ Kf7 7.Qg7+ Ke6 8.dxe5 Nd5 9.Qxg6.
The game could finish like this: 5...Rg8 6.Bxg6+ Rxg6 7.Qh5+ Rh6 (7...Kg8 8.Qxg6+ Kf8 9.Qg7+ Ke8 10.Qe7#) 8.Qf7#.
Sorry for not providing diagrams for some of the moves; and I\'ll admit that there are many possible moves for black aside from what is stated here but I\'m really impressed on how thorough you\'ve considered each move which result in a win for white! :)

|Credit to extopian for finding the initial first moves.I use a pen,notebook,chessboard and chess pieces that you can physically move to solve puzzles.Works for me.||-|

|Good for you windmill. Each of us should have our own methods which we are most comfortable with. Mine is laying out the pieces on the board and if the puzzle should happen to be too difficult for me, well I just try to move each piece until I (accidentally) hit on the right solution. :)||-|

|This one got out of my range after 4 moves. Finding moves where sacs are required took about ten visits to sort out the options. The knight move offered the most attacking mahem as bishop and queen were then active. The queen ended up some else though!||-|
