I set up the ambush, but didn't follow through with it (couldn't even find the easy mate after 1..Ke5). Oh well, on to the next one!

From a blitz game of mine, I am black, a Novotny I hope ;-)

That is beautiful, Zibbit! I'd be impressed if you had found that in a slow game but double props for finding it blitz- and yes, I believe this is a true Novonty- it's mate in 4. It would make an excellent puzzle position.

I had just seen a similar position in Karsten Muller's "Magic of Chess Tactics" I'll post that position once I find it in my pile of books (and it's a big pile!!!)

Where's Elmo the Miracle Chicken? Under the h8 bishop?

The Novotny is a beautiful puzzle style.
