After a random move of wBc1 2. Nc1# is threatened and the idea is to continue with 2. Rg1 3. Ra1+. But black has the interesting Turton defense 1.. Bh8! 2. Rg1, Qg7. White wants to answer that by playing the wB to the diagonal a1-h8 forcing the black Anti-Turton 2.. BxB and them 3. Rg1. This excludes 1. Bd2, Be3, Bh6? There is also the defenses 1.. Bd4 to be answered by 2. Rg1 BxR 3. Nc1+ and check and mate by the wB. Here against 1.Bg5? Black has the defense 4. Bf6+, e5 and mate is deferred. So only the key remains. Logical problem. Ado Kraemer (23.3.1898-25.6.1972), D, see wikipedia de, en, it, "was specialized in logical three- and moremovers. He published with his very close friend Erich Zepler two remarkably chosen and commented collections of problems: "Im Banne des Schachproblems" in 1951 and "Problemkunst im 20. Jahrhundert" in 1957. When you learn that Zepler was a Jew and migrated to England in 1935, while Kraemer was an SS (SS-Hauptsturmfuhrer), as Anders Thulin says, "it seems to make his cooperation with Zepler at the time even more remarkable." See also his recent biography by Ralf J. Binnewirtz (Nightrider Unlimited, 2012).

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.
