    Are there multiple forced 3 move mates? I only see the one which is the puzzle's solution.

    I was thinking Bd5+. If ...Kh8, Rxe8 ...Nxe8 Qf8#. If ...Kf8, Ng6# is gorgeous. If ...Nxd5, Rxe8#. Black's only reasonable move is to block with ...Qf7. Then Rxe8 ...Nxe8 Bxf7+ and Black is sealed in the coffin - ...Kf8 Ng6#, or else ...Kh8 Ng6#. The knight is employed in every variation.

    But I guess forced mate in 3 is better than forced mate in 4 heh.

    it seems like everything works in this position ie Rxe8 Knxe8 Bd5 with mate to follow or Bd5 first Knxd5 Rxe8 with mate to follow, black has no hope in this  position :-)
