Not getting????
why NXe5 leads to QXb2+ and why black is losing the tmpo....
Instead of loosing Q there are better ways I think

The bishop is a killer. Here's one variation. Black decides to lose his queen to eliminate the bishop. Also, if the knight moves, then queen takes queen.

2. Nxe5 fxe5
3. Rxe5 Nxe5
4. Bxe5+ Rf6
5. Bxf6#

well i still think it's weakly designed... what if instead of fxe5(or Qxb2 in original answer), black moves Rab8...

why 3. .... Kg8? I'd rather move 3. .... hxg6

well I'm quite sure that Qxb2 would be the best move for black... but It's not what a human mind can calculate, and a chess engine can... so i don't like such exercises..

I solved this problem with 2Nxe5 ,being prepared to answer 2-...Rab8 with the simple 3-Nxc4 with overwhelming advantage...
