Shown is a white Siers battery at work. Something forced on 1.. Bxe6 with a checking threat is needed. Also the K-flight to e5 has to be handled. So the key moves away the wNe4 guarding f5 with the threat 2. Nce2+ 3. Nf4# (mate by the Siers-Rössel) which works on 1.. Ke5, too. On 1.. Bxe6 2. Nd1+ 3. Ne3# and 1.. Bg5 2. Nxb5+ 3. Nc7# when again the Siers-Rössel mates.
