I am new to the nomenclature for moves so here goes:

Qe6 leaving:

Kd3 => Rd1

Kb2 => Qa2

or b3 => Qe2

Is that it?

Nope.

Kb3 is illegal, and Kd3 is met by 0-0-0

Qe6+ then either Qa2# or Rd1#

re2, qe6 doesn't work as black can go to Kb1 or Kb2. Kb2 then takes 3 to make with Qh2+ or Qg1+ and then Qb2# or Qc2#.

>>>Qe6+ then either Qa2# or Rd1#

And 3. Qd2# if 2... Pb3 ... missed that one.

It is indeed a nice twomover from the era that this site was not infested with trolls. The key move gives and takes a flight square which is perfectly acceptable. And the mates are perfect!
