White to move. Mate in three.

Please don't use a computer to figure this out. Either you see it or you don't. If you do use a computer please keep it to yourself.

I know. But it's amazing how many people don't see it.

Cool puzzle. Did you invent it? I guess not eh? Either way I enjoyed solving it.

No, it was shown to me a while ago. It seems it's harder to see on a physical board. Hilarious to watch a group of B players keep trying 1)Bxg7+ and 1) Nf7+. If you really want to mess with them give an easier one first where the Bishop is on b2. After they solve that one in about two seconds move the bishop back to a1.

I'm a class B also. But this one took a minute for me to solve. Whatsoever, cool puzzle.
