I didn't get a thought of a better title :)

I am trying to solve a puzzle which is white to move and mate in 2 moves.

To be frank, I am not asking all puzzles here. On my own I solved more than 50 and stuck up in nearly 15 (don't worry I will not ask all here itself, I am still trying to solve them)

[FEN "8/qQ5p/3pN2K/3pp1R/4k/7N/1b1PP/8 w - - 0 1"]

I thought Nd4 was only a waiting move. Somehow, I missed Rg4+. – Wes Apr 17 '14 at 14:14
