And there is no need for spoilers when you talk about what position is valid, this is assumed known by hypothesis. There are 960 positions, that's all. You do not need to reinvent this part. You only need to say how many of these 960 allow a fool mate for either black or white.
it isn't false about the knight laurv, if you have a knight 3 out from the king on the side being attacked it can block the queens attack.
