White is up a Queen, so he's already winning. 1.Ng5 is the only merciful thing to do, putting Black out of his misery.

I don't get it! Why doesn't FEN quoting seem to work? kbaumen also had a problem.
Oh, by the way, the +- sign (I think) means White GAINS a decisive advantage.

Yes... the pawn on h7 should be a bishop though. I did alter my FEN..

White does not need to GAIN what he already HAS.

It makes no difference whether h7 is pawn, Bishop or Knight. Just 1.Ng5 and 2.Rxh7#
