I've seen this one before, so won't claim credit for giving the solution, which runs ... [cue someone else]BTW this is your third TTPOX (I think) so should it be titled TTPOX III?
Or III/05 or something. But sometimes simplicity is a virtue.
I'm on fire; I believe I've managed this one as well, which is most unusual - the last Q&B -v- K mate in three I saw I failed utterly on (and no it wasn't this one - the famous one by, er, is it Sam Loyd?).Nice how the White king is on just the right square to protect d5 and still keep the vital long diagonal open.
Would you care to do the necessary?
1 Qb2 Kd7 2 Qe5 Kc6 3 Qd5 mate?
Quite so. From Offizers - Schachzeitung, 1905.I found it in Nunn, Solving In Style, Gambit, 2002, p.57.
You'd think SchachZeitung might have resigned a bit earlier, wouldn't you?!
