Meredith. Two times clearance of wBc2 for wRc1. The variations after 1. c3 are harder to find, since zugzwang is used after the third white move and Black is allowed more freedom. Both solutions seem to be intended and complement each other. Not that hard. IM Werner Speckmann (21.8.1913-23.2.2001), see wikipedia de, it, ru.

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.
