    I've looked over it again and again and I can not see it! I feel it has to do with a knight move but I just can't see! There are mate in 2's if black plays a certain move but there is no guarantee black will play those moves therefore there is no mate in 2!

    Easy mate in two, unfortunately I probably wouldn't recognize it in a game. Nice puzzle.

    Is there such a thing as a hard mate in 2?

    Very nice puzzle. I've PM'ed my answer. Solving this has given me a great boost of confidence in my abilities, although along with nsbolus, I probably wouldn't spot this over the board.

    JohnLennonForever: This one requires you to think outside the box a little bit. But it's there, keep at it.

    I agree I wouldn't see it normally but I've done it! Sorry if i spoil it but everyone always seems to get the answer before me anyway. I originally thought:
    Qf7+ NxQ
    Ng4#
    but it has no defense against KxN, so I think the move is:
    Nd7+! Bxd7
    Qd4#
    Thanks to everyone who helped me. It's really boosted my chess confidence.
