The key activates the wQ and threatens 2. Qd6#. Now there are several main variations when Black blocks d4 in four ways. The mates are always unique. There is also 1.. Bf4 2. Qh3# as well as the side variations of the captures on d7 and h4. The key is straightforward, but some attention ist required to find all variations.
