Jun-30-06  PaulKeres: Let me try to work through this without moving the pieces...

13. Rg3+ Kh6 (forced)
14. Bc1+ Kh5 (forced)
15. Be2+ Kxh4 (forced)
16. Rg4#

so I reckon its forced mate in 4, now I'll check with a computer :-)

Jun-30-06  PaulKeres: Nope, 16. Rg4 isn't even check! there's 16...Kh5, but it's still easy from there.

The answer is...

12. Qxg7+ Kxg7 13. Rg3+ Kh6 14.
Bc1+ Kh5 15. Be2+ Kxh4 16. Bg5#,

I almost got it, just 16. Bg5#. Definitely would have got it if was playing out the moves on the board. Both Black and White obviously saw it though.
