    I messed this up, but upon seeing the solution thought it was beautiful.

    White to move.

    Black g-pawn's ready to kill.

    Ah, nice edit. 😉

    I'd move c4-c5.

    1. c5 xc5
    2. xc5 Qxd3
    3. Qxd3

    I think white has won now.

    Lovely - think it's this. If not then it should be.



    Played on here by a 1600 player 'Shiny Knight !!' Game 778925

    Black to play and wrap it up. Mate in 4.



    solution but give it a try.

    GP if Qe5 then why not Ke7?

    Very nice last problem, as well. Interesting concept -- somewhat like smothered-mate with a twist.

    Correct, after Qe5, black isn't forced to exchange. There is a move that forces the combination in GP's example, that's what you're looking for, I think.

    Thomaster is right.
