Is it Qg4? PG
Damned if I can remember actually, I'll look it up later...
Yes, it is:1...Rg3 2.Nfxg31...Rh2 2.Rxh2 or 2.Qg11...Rg1 2.Qxg1 or 2.Rh2 or 2.Qh31...Rxf2 2.Qg11...Ng1 2.Neg31...Nh2 2.Nfg31...Ne1/d2/d4/e5 2.Qh31...Nh4 moves 2.Qxg2
You've actually omitted the most immediately obvious Black response...
Anyway, Jack does of course have the answer (as did PG). The puzzle was by Ellerman, Good Companions Meredith Tourney 1919 (3rd prize). I found it on p.17 of John Nunn's Solving In Style (Gambit, 2002).
