My first thought 1.c8=N+ turned out to be wrong.THEN i became wise.
1.Bb6+ Kxb6

(1.... Ka8 2.c8=Q#)
2.c8=N+ Ka5
3.b4#
Mate by P is most humiliating.

1.Bb6 check.

If 1..Ka8,Pawn to c8 = Q or R is mate.

If.1..Kxb6 , 2.Pawn to c8 = N check.

2..Ka5(only move)and 3.Pawn to b4 mate.

So , it is mate in three.

Didn't see the Ka5 move ... so here's a better line:

Bb6+ Kxb6
c7-c8=N+ Ka5
b4# mate

Happy Sunday to Susan and everybody

I instantly realize that it should be an under promotion to knight, but not with king on a7. With king on b6 it's much stronger, leading to Ka5 b4#. Therefore a magnetic bishop sack first to make this happen:

1. Bb6+ Kxb6
2. c8=N+ Ka5
3. b4#

Easy mate in 3 moves.

Mate in 3, sacrifice bishop in b6 whith check and c8=knight check, mate witch b4. If 1 ka8 c8=queen and easy mate.
