Don't know... The title just gives it away. It is just forced (for white) to check right away. Qd6+ is the only safe way to do so (any other white move is loosing for him/her), and the rest is easy. I didn't bother to see the combination, just checked.

It´s a double in solution, but i think the expected theme is the phillidor mate.

After I have first seen this motif, I started searching for sacrifices to achieve such a mate. Has not worked yet, but I love this mate :)
