First direct mate I think from Julia! Welcome! Nice change of threat, but pity there is only one variation after the key! (Of course purists will criticise the unprovided check forcing the keymove!).

1.cQd3=cS! ~ 2.cS3b4=cB#

• Julia says:

Yes, thanks, have added a “departure square” option for 2.cSb4=cB in animated solution.
