Amazing difficult study mate in 3

This is the hardest Study (mate in 3) that I ever tried to solve.. After checking twice all possible white moves.. I give up.

Samuel Loyd (January 30, 1841 – April 10, 1911) born in Philadelphia and raised in New York, was an American chess player, chess composer, puzzle author, and recreational mathematician.

If You don't know this famous Study try to solve without Engine :-)

    Absolutely amazing puzzle. I did not see this mate at all.  All because of a series of checks.  Brilliant djano.  Thanks for sharing!

    The first move I saw was Ke2 and dismissed it because of the pawn promotion. The second K move is even more fantabulous

    What about Qg1+?  Am I crazy, or does that save the day?

    Is clever mate. Instinct is not to let pawn Queen! I instruct my boys in Kharkov (Chess School) always to do what seems crazy move. Here, let pawn Queen = crazy move! Never look for sensible move.
