    Any knight move: N(x)f2#

    Any darksquared bishop move: Rb5#

    Any light-squared bishop move other than Bh7: Rh8#

    Bh7 2: Qxh7#

    No black checks.

    In Geticus post #15 diagram, the above strategy works.  Or am I missing something?

    Such was described in my Post #7.

    any knight move:N(x)g3#

    any dark squared B move:Rh5#

    Correct.  I confess, that after seeing the cleverness of Ka1, I did not proof Victor's details.  I feel he still deserves much credit, and merely typo'd.

    No, it's not. It's still mate in 3.
