how about pawn to b7, pawn to b8. Second queen.  Last move depends on black moves

According to the Engine, Pawn to b7 starts a Mate in 5...

1) b7... f5,
2) b8Q (Check +)... Kf6
3) Qg8... Nf7
4) Q on b3 takes Knight on f7 (Check+)... Ke5,
5) Q x f5 (Mate ++)

We need a Mate in 3.  :)

ow me aching head. :)

Looks interesting but I don't use a chess board.  I try to do it all in my head and when there are too many possible moves by black, I keep losing it.

Gonna give it a good try though

I see a 50% chance of a 3 move mate, but black would probably not cooperate.
