1.Qe6+.Kh8. (Of course not 1....Kf8.2.Qf7#)
2.Qh3+.Kg8. (Of course not 2...Bh6?.3.Qxh6+.Kg8. 4.Qh7+.Kf8.5.Qf7#)
3.Qe6+ with a perpetual.

Fortunately, Got out of trouble!
Unfortunately, it is a draw!

1. Qe6+ - Kh8
2. Qh3+ - Kg8
3. Qh7+ - Kf8
4. Ne6+ - black cannot avoid mate.


Nice one, thanks,

White actually mates:

1) Qe6+ Kh8
2) Qh3+ Kg8
3) Qh7+ Kf8
4) Ne6+ Kf7
5) Qxg7+ Kxe6
6) Qxg6#

Harry, you were on the right track:

1. Qe6 Kh8
2. Qh3 Kg8
3. Qh7! Kf8
4. Ne6!

And white's rook on the d-file is fatal to black's king by cutting off the retreat....

4. .....Kf7 (Ke8 5.Qg6#)
5. Qg7! Ke6 (Ke8 6.Qg6#)
6. Qg6#.

There is something missing in my solution. White can in fact.win!
1.Qe6+.Kh8.
2.Qh3+.Kg8.
3.Qh7+.Kf8.
4.Ne6+.
>A-4....Ke8.5.Qg8+.Bf8. 6.Qxf8#
>B-4....Kf7.5.Qxg7+.
>>B1-5....Ke8.6.Qf8#
>>B2-5....Kxe6.Qxg6#
