Answer To Chess Puzzle #63

The answer is for black to play R-e1 check. White is forced to play K-g2. Black then plays N-e3 check. If white moves the king, then black plays N-f5 which attacks the white queen and prevents the mate. If white plays pxe3 instead, black follows with Q-c2 check and then there is an easy series of checks that depending on play, either win the f6 pawn, the white queen or the game.
