  Ron: 1. I found the solution.
2. Impressive attacking game by Peter Meister.
Jun-03-22  Brenin: 26 Bc4+ Qxc4 deflects the Black Q from defending d7, allowing 27 Qd7+ Kg8 (27... Kg6 28 Rg1+ with mate by Qxg7 or Qh3) 28 Qe8+ Rf8 (28 ... Kxh7 29 Rh1+ with mate) and White has mate starting with either 29 Nf6+ or 29 Qxf8+. Black can decline the B sac with 26 ... Ke7 or Ke8 but then 27 Re1+ is fatal, while 26 ... Ne6 27 Qxe6 is mate.
Jun-03-22  EasilyConfused: If 27 . . . Kg6, then 28 Rg1+ The King has to move to h file. If 28 . . . KxN, Qxg7 mate. Other K moves also lead to rapid mate.
Jun-03-22  Brenin: Black had the advantage (N for P) until 19 ... Qc7? lost it (Qe7!, attacking the e-pawn and threatening Qa3+), while 23 ... Nd8 was a blunder: he could have taken the chance to move his K to safety with 23 ... O-O-O, e.g. 24 e7+ f5 25 exd8=Q+ Nxd8 26 Qh3 Qf4+ 27 Kb1 Qxg5 with advantage to Black..
Jun-03-22  mel gibson: I wasn't sure - there were so many combinations on the open board with the Queens in play.

White wins _mate in 18.

  Dionysius1: Yeeees. I solved it, and it's beautiful. Nothing shocking, pretty much one clear line from a first move that's easy to guess.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Fun fact--the Bf1 did not budge from its original square until move 26, and only to suffer immediate capture. A brief but glorious career.

I looked at Bc4 - but didnt see the Rook on the h-file .... one that got away ....

  scormus: 26 Bc4+
One of those moves that catches the eye before you've worked through the sequence to see that the sac is devastatingly sound.

I recall some advice I received from a top player. "Look at and get a feeling for the position. Before working out any lines, write down the first move you see that looks promising. Your intuition will often point you the the right move."

Jun-03-22  TheaN: Oh wow, terrible board vision. I missed the idea of Qd7+ entirely and thus Bc4+ had no point for me. Rare for me, tbh. I settled on 26.Qh5+? and although tricky, fails on 26....g6 27.Ng5+ Kf6! allowing 28.Ne4+, because 28....Kg7! -+ and White has no way to prevent Qf4.
Jun-03-22  Cellist: I saw it all the way, although I planned to play 29. Qxf8+, which is almost as good as the text (mates in one more move than 29. Nf6+).

  agb2002: White has a bishop for a rook.

Black threatens Qxc3+ and mate next.

The black queen prevents Qd7+. This suggests 26.Bc4+ (26.Qh5+ g6 27.Ng5+ Kf6 28.Ne4+ Kg7):

A) 26... Qxc4 27.Qd7+

A.1) 27... Kg8 28.Qe8+ Rf8 (28... Kxh7 29.Rh1+ Rh2 30.Rxh2#) 29.Qxf8+ Kxh7 30.Rh1+ Kg6 31.Rg1+ and mate next.

A.2) 27... Kg6 28.Rg1+ and mate in two.

B) 26... Ke7 27.Re1+ Kd6 28.Re6+ Kd7 (28... Nxe6 29.Qxe6#) 29.Re5+ Kc6 30.Rc5+ wins decisive material.

C) 26... Ke8 27.Re1+ wins decisive material.

  whiteshark: Easier than yesterday.
(this always works)
Jun-03-22  TheBish: Easy once you consider the nice bishop sac, which not only draws the black queen away from its guard of d7, but also clears the white rook for the final assault.
Jun-03-22  TheBish: Backing up a move, I suppose that seeing 25. Nh7+! would make it a Saturday or Sunday puzzle. I didn't find 26. Bc4+! particularly hard, since it's forcing and you're looking to get your rook out anyway.
