    This following puzzle was posted by 'saurabhchopra' on Thursday with the question " is it possible for White to Mate in 3?".  Yes it is but finding the solution gave me a headache & it's described as being of medium difficulty on the source site (thechesswebsite.com)!

                                              White to move & mate in 3

     

    { Click on 'Move List' to see alternative mates }

    Here's a hint: >>Move the queen<<

    Good luck!

    I got the same headache!!!

    Your puzzle is bad stephen, since the moves black makes aren't forced and they are additionaly pretty big mistakes

    With respect, Cnacnel I don't think you've understood it properly. Have you taken a careful look at the alternative moves/mates?

    I admit the main line isn't the best but that's how it was presented on the source site!  If you think Black can defend against 1.Qb8, then please show how..
