Meir v Alsager 14/8/23

Good draw for Meir after two bad previous losses.A win or draw for me could have sealed it, although I was up against an opponent with a 1562 grading. Can someone contact David Hackney I think I have the solution to his puzzle. Option 1 White Black Bc4 Rxh7 Bd3 mate Option 2 White Black Bc4 Nxg6check Qxg6mate Whatever Blacks moves are won't matter.
