    Back to first one for a minute... I must be dumber 'n I thunk then. I still can't see it. Solution says Rg2 is key, so do that, then Ke3, solution says Qe2++. I can't see why that's the end. What's stopping Kd4? Should I get my coat?

    2.Qb3? Kc5! escapes.

    Yes. Qb3 is not correct. Rg3 is the required response - to effect mate in three - forcing Ke4 allowing Qc4++.
