Tactics Friday

Yes, I know it's Sunday but I was so exhausted at the end of the week that the Friday tactic had to wait unto today.

Both queens are en prise, but it's white's move. 1.Bxh7+ Kh8 [1..Kxh7 2.Qd3+ wins a queen] 2.Qg4 leaves black insurmountable problems. The game ended quickly: 2..d4 3.Ng6+ Bxg6 [3..Kxg7 4.Qh5+ Kg8 5.Nxe7#] 4.Bxg6 and black resigned as he will have to lose too much material just to avoid immediate mate, Samsonkin-Inigo 2011

Today's Puzzle:

White to play and win

Answer tomorrow;)
