Chess Puzzle: White To Play And Win

Here is an amazing chess puzzle!

Prima facie it looks obvious that White is clearly winning…but it’s not as simple.

Black has just played …Qd4+. White to play and win.

Kh2 will be met with Qf4+. White cannot capture Queen as it would lead to stale mate.

Hint: Great Sacrifice
