The Buffalo Problem

Col. G. L. Sicherman
Mini-Might Chess Bulletin, 1978

White to move and mate in three.

“Chess players in Buffalo have no patience with chess problems because White's key-move is followed by a six-hour delay while Black chooses his reply. With the Buffalo theme there is no delay because all of Black's moves are forced—hence the name.” —letter to James R. Schroeder

The objects in the lower right corner are not pawns but Buffalo chips. Every Buffalo problem has them.
