If there an obvious (or unobvious) reason why 1.g3 doesn't win?

Ng6 wins pretty instantly.

I can't see any good reply to Ng6? certainly prettier than g3 anyway!

Indeed, 1.Ng6 was my intended solution and the move I played.

What a shame 1.g3 also wins. Still, well spotted Justin!

Ah, I assumed that it was entitled "That Friday feeling" because you'd missed it.

This may be projection, however, as yesterday I failed to notice that my bishop on e3 was attacking a rook on a7.

As a puzzle, does it work if you take away the bishop on c1?

Indeed. Or, say, remove the g2 pawn and move the king to h1.
