Interesting hard puzzle

I was shown today a very interesting puzzle that even engines can't find. I believe it is a puzzle mainly for 2200 rated players and above. I hope you enjoy it :-d

[FEN "n2Bqk2/5p1p/p4KP1/5Q2/8/8/8/8 w - - 0 1"]


White to move and win!
I sometimes drift over this way,, but not very often

Re: Interesting hard puzzle

Is this possible?

Qc5+ Kg8 gxh7+ Kxh7 Qh5+ Kg8 Qg7# It might be dumb but it looks easier and simpler to me! :)

The line can't be right, the queen can't move from h5 square to the g7 square ;)

I think he meant Qh5+ Kg8 Qg5+ K any Qg7#
but...
Qc5+? Kg8 gxh7+ Kh8!
note: this is a kind of tactic for defending in the middle game (espesially when castled on opposite sides)
