Black has the defense 1.. Bd4 which gives the flight e3. There are two capturing white moves (on e6 and d3) to avoid this. Both work on the defenses at d4: 1.. Rd4, Qd4, Bd4, with changed mates, but 1. Rxe6? Be5! As capturing keys are unusual, one may first be puzzled on how to solve this. FIDE Album. Geoffrey K. Hicks.
