The wQ is out of play and needs to be activated. It is by a Q-sacrifice on f3 with the threat 2. Qe3# which can be prolonged by just one move unless the wQ is captured. On 1.. NxQ, PxQ, RxQ there follow 2. Ba7+ (3. Nc4#), exd3 (threat 3. d4#, Na4#), Nb6 (3. Na4#). A good and not too hard chess puzzle.

Vladimir Kos (* 20.6.1928, 2.7.2007) Czech composer and FIDE Master. "Vladimir Kos was a composer of Bohemian problems, especially threemovers, and an International Judge."
