Thanks SwissGambit. Another puzzle leaving me disposed to bang my head against my computer desk. I haven't given up so nobody post the answer please.

I can get a mate in 2 ... :s

Who's move is it?

EDIT: Maybe not ... I'll think about it.

There is no forced mate in 2. Please check your solution again.

Solution:

1.Rd1! [threat 2.Ne5 and 2.Rd5] 1...Bxd1
1...Bxc4 2.Ne5+ Kb4 3.Qb7+ Ka3 4.b3+
2.g4! [threat 3.Ne5+ Kxd6 4.Qxd7+] 2...Ba4 3.Nb3 [threat 4.Nxa5] 3...Bxb3 4.Ne5+ Kxd6 5.Qxd7+ Ke5 6.Qe7+ Kf4 7.Qf6+ Ke4 8.Qf5#

1.g4? is premature due to 1...Bxc4!
