Test your chess: daily chess puzzle # 44

Black to play and win



AB Rhode v K McKenzie 1995




This is quite similar to yesterday's position, with g2 and the white squares being key: 1…Bg2+ 2 Kg2 (2 Ke1 or 2 Kg1 loses to the Nf3+ fork) 2…Qf3+ and mates, since if 3 Kg1 Qg3+ can be played, because the f2 pawn is pinned by the Bb6: so a check or two more, and Nf3 is mate.
