6. Rosie Fay says:

Nice problem. Black can hold out a little longer if they are not tempted to start checking, but instead play 3 … Kg1 (breaking White's Q-K battery). Then 4 Qa7+! Kh1 5 Qh7+ Kg1 6 Qg7+ (Qg6+) Qg4+ 7 Qxg4+ and mate 2 moves later.

Over the board, I would never get something like this; but knowing that it was a puzzle, I pretty quickly thought of sacrificing the rook.
