A Bohemian problem with model mates. The key sacrifices the wN and threatens 2. Qd3+ Kc6 3. Ne5#. On 1.. c2, Kxc4, e5 there follows 2. Qb7+, Qe4+, Nb6+ Kxc4, Kb5, Ke6 (Kc6, Kxd6) 3. Qb3#, a4#, Qg6# (Qd7#). Interesting moves of the wQ over the whole board.

Stanislav Trčala (*12.11.1878, +19.6.1920) Czech composer. He sometimes used the pseudonym S. Sypěna (see Anders Thulin, "Chess Pseudonyms and Signatures," 2011, available online). Michal Dragoun and Jan Kalendovsky published the booklet "Stanislav Trčala - sachovy odkaz," Praha, self-edition, 1999, in which today's problem is reprinted. "A tribute to the talented Stan Trcala with some of his games, but mainly 90 of his chess problems."

Since the opening in October 2000, I had published online more than 4931 free chess problems. If you want more details, look at my chess figures pages.
