White wants to mate on the 5th rank with wRh3. But directly clearing it fails 1. Be7?, Bd8? Ka5!, Kc5! So the wR moves in an ambush behind the wB and now 1.. Ka5, Kc5 2. Bd8#, Be7#. In fact, the Banny theme is shown here in a miniature setting. Ring Tournament, 1989, 2nd Commendation.

Krzysztof Drążkowski (* 26.10.1955) Polish composer "is a chess player and composes direct mates and helpmates."
