Solution:

xabichess is correct - well played! An interesting analysis with white trying hard to utilise his knight and bishop as blocking pieces but alas to no great avail.

Mate can be achieved in 7 moves, with the move order as follows:

1... f4+ 2. Kf2 Bh4+ 3. Kg1 Ne3 4. Ne4 Rd1 5. Ng3 Bxg3 6. hxg3 fxg3 7. h4 Rxf1#

Hope you enjoyed this. I'll post another in a week or so.

Cheers,

ibark
