1….Qf3

if white change horse position 2…Qh1#

and if white change Q position 2….qg2#

otherwise 2….Bxhorse+ and then 3 …..Qh1#

it means that mate is possible in 3

1. Qe3-f3 Bf6-e5

2. Bg3xf2 Kg1-h2

3. g4-g3 Be5xg3

4. Qf3xg3

This won’t work as after

2. Bg3xf2 Qxf2

White is then winning

1. Qe3-f3

2.Bg3xf2+

3.Qf3-h1++
