    Hi Hamzi, you're not by any chance related to Andy Toh, are you? Welcome to the board.

    Hamzi, may I ask why you give a position and then include the first move? Wouldn't it be simpler (if you're going to give the first move) to include it in the image?

    While not a problemist, I believe the normal parameters include 'white to play and win' or similar. Have you considered that?

    Without those elements, 'solving' is rather open-ended. I could claim to solve your puzzle by making a legal move, for instance.

    hamzi,

    In general terms the solution to the puzzle is that white mates by either driving the king to f4 or f6 and mating with the knight which checks the king and defends the rook at the same time. The moves are

    (i) 2.Bd4+ Kf4 3.Nh3#

    or

    (ii) 2.Bd6+ Kf6 3.Ne4#

    The thing is black cannot simultaneously prevent both checkmating paths. If he plays 1... Nxc4 or Nb7 preventing (ii) then white just implements pattern (i). Likewise, after 1... Nc6 or Nb3 preventing (i) then white uses plan (ii).

    The full solutions are

    1... Nxc4 2.Bd4+ Kf4 3.Nh3#
    1... Nb7 2.Bd4+ Kf4 3.Nh3#

    and

    1... Nc6 2.Bd6+ Kf6 3.Ne4#
    1... Nb3 2.Bd6+ Kf6 3.Ne4#

    The bishop is even more useless then the knight. The only decent square the bishop can attack is e4 as that would prevent plan (ii) but in that instance plan (i) can be used by white. That is

    1... Bd5 2.Bd4+ Kf4 3.Nh3#

    In fact, if the bishop moves white should always use plan (i) since otherwise f7 becomes an escape square for the king. But since no bishop move can threaten either of the key squares of h3 or d4, this is not an problem.

    Finally, black can try to move the king. In this case, white plays the same moves but in the reverse order (knight move then bishop). The full solutions in these cases are

    1... Kf4 2.Nh3+ Ke5 3.Bd4#
    or
    1... Kf6 2.Ne4+ Ke5 3.Bd6#

    Not sure what you mean perhaps...

    (1) 1... Nxc4 (or Nb7 or B-anywhere) 2.Bd4+ Kf4 3.Nh3#
    (2) 1... Nc6 (or Nb3) 2.Bd6+ Kf6 3.Ne4#
    (3) 1... Kf4 2.Nh3+ Ke5 3.Bd4#
    (4) 1... Kf6 2.Ne4+ Ke5 3.Bd6#

    I think that's all there is.

    There was one wrinkle I missed. If the pawn is taken then the King can play to d5 and must be mated by the e-pawn so you need to add...

    (5) 1... Nxc4 (or Bxc4) 2. Bd4+ Kd5 3.e4#

    or update line (1) to include this subvariation
