Something must be done on the K-flight to g5, which explains the key 1. Kg7 (threat 2. fxe3+ Kg5, Qg3 3. Nxh3#, Nf3#) exposing the wK to a check. On the check 1.. Qxg4+ which self-pins the bQ 2. Kh6 (3. f3#, fxe3#) Qf4+ 3. Rxf4. On the K-flight 1.. Kg5 2. Nxh3+ Kh4 3. f3 (fxe3)#. It is remarkable that Bruno did not give an extra star here for the two black checks.
