    No doubt this is going to be rediculously easy for you puzzlers, but maybe for some of the lower rated players it might be quite fun; I certainly enjoyed it, and think I found two ways to mate for black (whose turn it is to move).

    Isn't 2.Qxf4+ (after 1...Nf4+) a check? Also, after 1...Qxh3+ 2.Kg1 Qh1 is not a checkmate since the queen is unprotected.

    1...Qxh3+ 2.Kg1 g2 is crude, but effective. White will soon be mated.

    I don't see the second way. I only see 1.Qxh3
