An easy chess puzzle. The wN moves in the key to b8 to deliver mate on c6 or a6 depending on the black P-move.

Roger Diot (* 7.5.1923 in Amiens, 28.2.1981 in Amiens) French composer. "Roger Diot was specialized in three- and moremovers. He was an International Judge in that field. Between 1968 and 1971 he wrote three issues of the magazine "Probleme" dedicated to the twomover themes A, B, C, D and E. After his death, the French magazine "Diagrammes" published the book "Avant-plan" (about strategic multimovers with fore-plan) which the author had just finished. He had also published a book about Mutates."

Since the opening in October 2000, I had published online more than 6650 free chess problems. If you want more details, look at my chess figures pages.
