    you're right , how about doesn't matter which queen but Qd3, Qb5. Depending on how black reacts, you can do Qb7, Qb8, or Qc6 if he decides to take knight.

    The nasty problem is that White cannot afford to waste time to prepare checkmate or whatever zugzwang he has in mind since Black has always Be6!, threatening to check with Bxd5+ and no more checkmate in 3 possible. Also the direct Na6+ leaves the a7 bishop unprotected after Bb7 and White is faced again with the "threat" of Bxd5+ with check. This one really a toughie...

    Waste time? This doesn't look like a bullet game. It looks like no game I've seen, and I'm sure that's why it's presented as a puzzle.

    TMIMITW By waste time he means waste 'tempo' as a chess saying.

    Also I still think my solution is correct: 1. Nb8+ Bb7 2. Rc8 Kxa7 (2. ... Bxd5 or Bc6 3. Nc6#) 3. Rxb7#

    Refi, "tempo" is an overused term here. Again, 4 queens! NO chance of losing. Yes, mate in 3 is not easy to see, but, it will still be mate.

    Also, I'm starting to think that mate in 3 doesn't exist.

    Alright! Think I finally got it! 1.Kb2!! and wherever the darn bishop go it seems to be always checkmate in 2.

    If Ba6 or Bb7, then Qg8 followed by Qxc8 mate

    Bd7 2.Na6+ Bc6 3.Bxc6 mate

    Be6 2.Na6+ Bxd5 3.BXd5 mate

    Bf5, Bg4 and Bh3 are answered by Na6 mate.

    So it seems to be a elaborate zugzwang finally...

    It will be mate no matter what. Isn''t that the goal? To win?

    It seems that the heat turned up.

    Gentlemen, as you know, puzzle doesn't has to always occur in real games.

    That's puzzle, only to make us find out what the correct moves.

    And now, several tries are still failed.

    The closest one is as what Fralnp said, Kb2!!.

    But it's still fail to Bd7!!!
    I give it one more exclam. mark to show you that it's prevented mate.

    Math Word Problem:

    Anwar has 1 apple, and then an angel from ABC Planet gives him 1 apple, how many apples does he have?

    No need to answer, because ABC Planet doesn't exist.

     

    Or maybe because you have no idea to solve the puzzle, Mr. 2116-rated?
