Default Qd1 is the best move

Ka1 (white) vs. Kb3, Qc2. Black to move.

There are four moves; Qa2, Qb2, Qc1 and Qd1. Until one wants the opponent to
lose more time or something.

1) Qa2 (?) is an unnecessarily long move. A bit interesting (vs. Qb2). A
little funny perhaps.

2) Qb2 is likely the most natural, and so likely loses the least mental
energy. Could be a bit dump and sometimes it may drop at b1 (or the black
King may be at b4). Could be a bit rude or something, that it maybe should
be.

3) Qc1!? An interesting choice. The upward, further move is not likely
harder to make. A smart and a more polite move; this may not be the place
for it but one maybe still should prefer it over Qb2, it being a nice
gesture. However, after "Qc1" one may see it at b1.

4) Qd1! Needs possibly two directions and is somewhat abnormal as it's the
wrong direction. But winning the game is the more important factor; this
move is going to score better than any other move.

They're all mate. None is any better or worse than any other.

This position is impossible: there is no move White could have made
to get into this position.
