    If you didn't get this one, maybe you're looking for something too difficult. 

    Benny B's post, "Round and round" is a good hint

    Your line is flawed:

    Black's 1. ... Nb6? is a poor move.  It allows 2. Qe6#.  But white doesn't take that opportunity.  Instead he moves 2. Kb7 (an unnecessary wasted move).  Black is helpless to prevent mate on the next move, but ...Bf6 would have prevented white's Qe5#.  Might have been a good idea since white already missed Qe6# once; he might miss it again.

    Black's best response to 1. Qf5 would be  ... Nb4, leaving white's c5 knight protected only by the queen.  It becomes an escape-square and vulnerable to capture in response to impending queen-checks.

    EDIT - And I had already decided to ignore your postings - Then when I came back to see what's new, I saw this on the first page and forgot this was the person who posts so many flawed lines.  -- at least this was about today's daily puzzle.

    In addition to my earlier comment: "What if black plays 1. ... Nb6+ instead of  1. ... Kc6"??? "

    My Crafty16.19 shows even better.. 1. Nxb4 !

    There is no way a mate in 3 unless black wants to commit sucide with Kc6

    With all that material, you could easily win.
