I didn't progress too far in training today, reaching Position 2159 after half an hour.

 

The following position I just couldn't see

 

Position 2152: White to Mate in 2

 

 
I was stuck on this for a while, as whilst I did consider c8=Q I failed to see a move ahead that the new Queen can swing to check from f8 which coordinates with the other Queen. I blind spot in calculation (the check from behind).
