another position

I have another position, white to move, and mate in 2. The key for the pieces are WK- White King, WC- White Chancellor, WA- White Archbishop, BK- Black King, BQ- Black Queen, and BC- Black Chancellor. The coordinates for the pieces are WK- H1, WC- I4, WA- H6, BK- J8, BQ- I7, and BC-H8. I have found 7 solutions to this puzzle. See if you can find them all. Good luck!

I like that solution ljl, very subtle!

This position is also not realistic and rather contrived. Who is this ljlmetal person? Is he a weak player that he thinks these puzzles are interesting?

No need to be elitist dueling. Some readers must find it interesting.
