Easy! Bg6 and mate in one!
Be5+ dxe5. Qxe5+ Kg6. Qh5++
1. Bg6+ Rxg6 (Kxg6, Qh5#)2. Qe7#
I saw this position recently reading "Wonderboy". Magnus played this aged 12, but already almost a Grandmaster. I showed it my 7 year old who was very excited that he found the solution, doubly so when I told him Magnus played it in a game.Of course the answer is Bg6+ with mate by the Queen on either e7 or h5 with two different types of epaulette mate (we call the one on h5 a "Swallow Tail" mate).
After 1.Bg6+ !, black will be mated.If black takes the bishop with the rook, then he is mated with 2.Qe7. If the king captures the bishop, then 2.Qh5 is mate!
1. Bg6+ hurts.
First thing I see is Bd5+ cxd5 Re7+ Kg6 Qh5#Instead though: Bd5+ cxd5 Re7+ Kf8 Rxd7+ Ke8 which appears to be a dead end.The other bishop check is much better:Bg6+ Kxg6 Qh5#Bg6+ Rxg6 Qe7#

Easy one! Bg6+ - If KXg6, Qh5#, and if Rxg6, Qe7#.

Bg6 and game over. Either a mate on h5 or on e7.Magnus Carlsen! The very best ever. I think 99% of the people do not realise what it takes to get to the ELO-level (ELO = prove of consistancy) he is. Every draw is loss of points! He has to win. Take a look at Super players Aronian, Kramnik, Karjakin...etc., all with great ELO fluctuation, ups and downs in big tournaments on very regular base. Kramnik and Aronian are on their top-ELO, about 2815. There is only one player! I hope he beats Anand to become World Champion (WC is a match within a match). Magnus deserves it more then anyone. His whole career deserves it. I know it's probably subjective for most chess lovers. I also love Kasparov, Fischer, and all others. But Carlsens achievement is just unique!

Perhaps I really can play like Magnus:-)I immediately notice the threat Qe7# if white plays e.g. Bd3, but this brings little because of e.g. Qf8.Could there be a better place to put that bishop?I think yes!1. Bg6+! Kxg6 (Rxg6 Qe7#)2. Qh5#Nice!It probably took Magnus 1 second to see this, it took me longer....

Bg6 is most direct and surprising.However, Bd5 also wins ...Bd5† cxd5Rd7† Kd8 (Kg6 Qh5††)Rd6† Kd7Qd7† Kg6Qxf6† Kh7Qh6††
1Bg6+ if ..Kxg6 2Qh6++. If 1 ..Rxg6 2Qe7++
small error in previous posting:1. Bd5† cxd52. Qxd5 Kf8 (Kg6 Qh5††)3. Qc5† Kf74. Rd7† Kf85. Rd6† Kf76. Qd7† Kg67. Qxf6† Kh78. Qh6††of course 1. Bg6† faster :)
1. Bg6+ wins easily!What am I missing?
1.Bg6+ If 1...Rxg6 2.Qe7#. If 1...Kxg6 2.Qh5#. Hope I did not miss anything.
