An easy Q-minimal. The wQ attacks with a short threat at g4 and keeps an eye on the diagonal e8-h5 to retain the mate after g5. On 1.. Nf5 (unguarding e4) 2. Qxe4 and on 1.. f5 (blocking f5 for the bN) 2. Qf6.

Alexander Zidek (*24.5.1964) Austrian composer and FIDE Master, "composes direct mates and helpmates." From Chlubna, Wenda, "Problempalette II," Vienna, 1991: Debut in 1986 in the Austrian newspaper "Die Presse." "Entwickelte sich in kürzester Zeit zu einem unserer einfallsreichsten und produktivsten Komponisten, der auch vor schwierigen Modethemen nicht zurückschreckt."

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.
