slowbot2 flagging or is it really a 3 stars problem? 1. Bg6? Nxc6! and the wB blocks the way of the wQ to mate on g8. So in the key the wB has to move one square further to the right.

before my seeing comments: My solution: to queen mate\foresee knight[ and bishop,king,rook] defenses, white's bgsix is start before mate with q\b\r\ \etc.

Bohemian problem with model mates. Several mates are already prepared in the set, but a threat is needed. 1. Qg6? fails to 1.. Nxb3. To cope with this defense a random move of wBf5 along the diagonal b1-h7 threatens 2. Qd7#. But 1.. Nd3, Nxc6 eliminate all candidates except of the key. Two stars suffice regarding the hardness.
