    Comment in white text (to hide solution) below:

    Unfortunately I saw the solution within seconds (...Qh1+ with Bc6+ and Rd1+ to follow and black can force a draw) - as with many puzzles, when you know there is something to see then you start by looking at outrageous queen sacs, but finding them OTB is not necessarily as easy.

    Nice position though.

    Yes I had the same experience. From a puzzle point of view it is not difficult but to see such puzzle-like solution over the board, that is the trick.
