    Why not in one move, moving the rook on the left side to the left one space.
    ?

    (okay I see...then take the black bishop with the white bishop.)
    (I REALLY have to learn how to write in that code-speak.)

    Your sequence allows for Kc2, not check mate.

    Because then the queen is not defending the d1 square.

    Answer is Rb1+, Kd2, Qd1#
    Okay, will you please do me a favor and read my edited post and tell me if I was right? I cannot read the AB1X-bx stuff.

    Rb1 Kd2, Qc2 Checkmate

    EDIT: Nope, I'm wrong.

    Kxe1, and I cannot see how mate can be avoided the next move.


    Edit: Qc2# and Kf2# being the two threats.

    I though I saw it but did't.

    SJ you are right in your edited post the black bishop and Queen can have interferring Diagonals

    Perhaps:

    1. Qb4 (threatens QxN ++)

    Now if:

    1. ... BxR
    2. QxN ++

    if

    1. ... RxB
    2. Rd2 ++

    or

    1. ... Nc2
    2. Rb1 ++

    or

    1. ... Qd2
    2. Rb1 ++

    After 1.Qb4 Rxd3 2.Rd2+ Black has Bb2.

    What about Bc3+? If 2.Kf2+ then Be1, and Rd2+ is met by Bb2. You goose.

    Ok, got it!

    Rb1+ Kd2, Qd1++

    EDIT: No, no... that doesn't work either, Kc3
