    havnt looked-but i am assuming you are sure it is white to move and win? It isnt black playing to stave off white?

    1.Qh7 Kf8 2.Qh8 Ke7 3.Qxg7 Kd8 4.Bg5 Re7 5.Qxe7#

    This seems to be it.

    Sorry, I wasn't intending to make fun of you. I just thought it was funny that you asked the question for no particular reason, that's all.

    It was a problem I found, in an old newspaper while cleaning out and office. the thing is, it was from 12 years ago. The solution would run the following day. I found a bunch of them, I guess years back there was a chess fan here. Most of them had the solutions, seems whoever cut these out made a scrapbook out of them. That one happened to be one with no solution.

    What about 1. Qh7 Kf8 2.Bh6? Is there a way to stop the mate from either Qxp, Qf7, or Qh8 if Re7
