    I see Ne2, blocking off g1 & g3 and threatening Rh6#.

    Only recourse he has is to move the g-pawn up in order to give his king a place to run.

    As far as I've gotten in 5 minutes or so.

    That seems so obvious. I figure that's what it is.

    Black can move Ne2 but white has g3. What will black do then? White can always crawl away with his king.
    White is in trouble, ok, but there is no mate in sight.

    1...Ne2 2.g3 Rh6+ 3.Kg2 Bh3+ 4.Kf3 Bxf1 wins the exchange.

    After White's Kg2, Black should play Bf3+! first. Rh6 mates next move.

    The king has the escape hole at G3 and maybe wiggles away.
    That's what the pawn sac is for.

    No, the N on e2 covers g3.
