  Phony Benoni: Queen aimed at h7, Knight on f5, rook ready to swing over -- looking at the queen sac is automatic:

<32.Qxh7+ Khx7 33.Rh3+ Kg6 34.Rh6+ Kg5 35.h4+ Kg4 36.Ne3+ Kg3 37.Rf3#>

  ChessHigherCat: Queen sac Wednesday, with a Kamikaze king-walk theme:

32. Qxh7+ Kxh7 33. Rh3+ Kg6 34. Rh6+ Kg5 35. h4+ Kg4 36. Ne3+ Kg3 37. Rf3#

The first moves are all pretty obvious checks. It took me a while to see 36. Ne3+ but it is "only moof" because any non-check would allow the counter-sacrifice QxN.

  ChessHigherCat: Pay no attention to the men in the little boxes above mine, which is the only real, bona fide version!
Sep-13-17  stst: It's an intimate body-massage, or, a zig-zag "Wing-Chuan":

32.QxP+ KxQ
33.Rh3+ Kg6
34.Rh6+ Kg5
35.h4+ Kg4
36.Ne3+ Kg3

The monarch is forced, one step per move, until stopped by all nails around him.

Sep-13-17  saturn2: After Qh7 the king is chased to death.

  jith1207: Wednesday = Monday + Tuesday.
Sep-13-17  AlicesKnight: 32.Qxh7+ leads to a forced one-way mate (.... Kxh7; 33.Rh3+ Kg6; 35.Rh6+ etc). Not uncommon;

shows a very similar pattern by Spielmann (v. our friend NN in 1913)

Sep-13-17  latebishop: I believe these kind of mates used to be called corkscrew mates which I think is apt.
Sep-13-17  groog: Seems more like a Tuesday puzzle.
Sep-13-17  leRevenant: <stst:

... out of breath n coffin his lungs out.

  malt: < ChessHigerCat Queen sac Wednesday >

32.Q:h7+ K:h7 33.Rh3+ Kg6 34.Rh6+ Kg5
35.h4+ Kg4 "Come into my parlour"
36.Ne3+ Kg3 37.Rf3#

Sep-13-17  ozmikey: These "single-line" puzzles are usually fairly straightforward.
Premium Chessgames Member
  diagonalley: easy (practically plays itself!) ... but very pleasing

  morfishine: <32.Qxh7+> starts the march of death


Sep-13-17  ndg2: Dead man walking, starting with 32.Qxh7+
Premium Chessgames Member
  gawain: I love <ndg2>'s comment: <Dead man walking.> Perfect.

Too bad Black, having played along so far, did not gallantly play just one more move to allow the mate to appear on the board.

Sep-13-17  alphee: Those queen sacrifices are always very nice ....
Premium Chessgames Member
  ChatGrognon: Can Black avoid checkmate after Rh3?
Premium Chessgames Member
  kevin86: mate comes next move.
Premium Chessgames Member
  kevin86: a queen sac sets it off.
