"Every why hath a wherefore." William Shakespeare (1564-1616), "The Comedy of Errors" act II, sc. ii, l. 45.

A logical problem. The main plan is 1. Ba6 Rxa6 2 Kc8 3. Nc7#. But it still fails to 2.. Qg4! and on the first foreplan 1. Qf3? Nxf3 opens the h-file for the bR. Thus the second foreplan 1. Rh5 gxh5 followed by the first 2. Qf3 Nxf3 and now the main plan succeeds. A side variation is 1.. a6 2. Rh8+ Ka7 3. Nd8 4. Nxc6#.
