If 1. Qa8+ Bb8 2. Qb7+ then 2...Qxb7.   White must play 1. Qb7+, when black's queen cannot capture white's queen.

I think you mean Kxb8,not Qxb7.My bad I thought you meant to take B on b8,then the K could take Qb8,going back I found my error.1.Qa8...Bb7, 2.Qb7+...Qxb7,no mate in 3.You are correct,once B move's,black Q cover's b7.You need to move black K to d8,so that is why 1.Qb7+...Kd8, 2.Qa8+...Bb8, Qxb8#,the N was covering d7 so no escape for black K.It really was an easy puzzle with all forced move's.Sorry for the confustion!Good day chess head's!

What is the point of dragging it out to three moves when it can be solved in one?
