    Things doesn't go like that. Black will response a strategic deffensive move:

    1. Qxc6    Be6

    So, it wouldn't be a mate in three.

    Goodbye

    Check my comment. Be6 is also not much better.

    I like the added annotations because it explains intentions behind the maneuvers. I hope Chess.com will inclued more in these positional studies.

    Cool   Sometimes, the solution stares you in the face but, there is a tendency to over complicate things when there appears to be possible alternatives. As with this puzzle !

    Amazing how manipulating the opponent with a forced sac puts the opponent in the position for the kill.  But starting with a simple QXQ trade would work as well.
