1.Qxf7+!! Rxf72. Ng6+ Kg8 3. Rh8#
Qxf7+ and mate follows
25. Q:f7+ R:f726. Ng6+ Kg827. Rh8#
1. Qxf7+!! Rxf72. Ng6+ Kg83. Rh8+ checkmate
If only the knight could safely give check on g6....
1.QXf7!! Rxf72. Ng6+ Kg83. Rh8#
I saw it pretty fast, from studying lots of similar patterns. Nf6 is not the move.
1. Qxf7+ Rxf72. Ng6+ Kg83. Rh8++
One of those positions where you kick yourself for not seeing it quicker! Should have homed in to the f7 pawn straightaway!1.Qxf7+ Rxf72.Ng6+ Kg83.Rh8#0-0-0-0-0-
1. Qxf7+ Rxf72. Ng6+ Kg83. Rh8#
This time I won't fail, like with the checkmate in three from yesterday :-)1.Qxf7+ (getting rid of the annoying pawn that defends g6)1...Rxf7 2.Ng6+ (cutting the escape route for the king via e7)2...Kg8 3.Rh8#
The straightforward1. Qxf7+ Rxf72. Ng6+ Kg83. Rh8#does the trick.
Easy Queen sac, not world class.
Its an easy mate in 3. But I wonder why this was dug up? He is world champ now and this shows him losing to an IM, long ago. Am sure the Polgar sisters have played much worse :D
Nice, I love a good Queen sac!

1. Qxf7+ Rxf72. Ng6+ Kg83. Rh8+#
1.Qxf7+ Rxf7 2.Ng6+ and 3. Rh8#I'm not strong, but would have seen this in blitz!
Try a Q sacrifice. g6 is then free for the Knight.
