Mate in 3

It's Christmas Eve and you probably have plenty of time on your hands (assuming you're not working).   You might need it as this apparently simple mate in three is in fact quite tricky.   It's White to play, of course.  Again, don't use your computer!


These puzzles seem to be grabbing everyone's attention.   Yesterday we had a record number of page views to the website (175); the previous record was exactly 100.
