A Bohemian problem with model mates. The idea is to move the wR to a safe place on the third rank to threaten the Q-sacrifice 2. Qf4+ KxQ 3. Ng6#. But not 1. Rh3? Bf6!, instead the Rook has to move to d3 such that on 1.. Bf6 the second Q-sacrifice follows 2. Qe3+ PxQ 3. Bd6#. On 1.. f4 2. Rxd4 (threat 3. Qf4#) PxR 3. Qa5#. Side variations are 1.. Rg1, Kd5 2. Qxe2+, Qe3(Qf4). 1st Prize. Straightforward to solve once the threat is detected.

Václav Císař (* 4.10.1879 in Pilsen, † 11.3.1957 in Pilsen) Czech composer. "Er komponierte etwa 300 Aufgaben, überwiegend Dreizüger, nach den Prinzipien der böhmischen Schule, insbesondere Aufgaben mit ruhigem Schlüssel und stiller Fortsetzung. Michal Dragoun hat erst kürzlich im zweiten Band seiner Galerie ceskych skladatelu (Prag 2002) eine Sammlung seiner Aufgaben herausgegeben. Cisar selbst hat (zusammen mit Jan Berkovec und Fr. Hladik) 1940 unter dem Titel Sbirka uloh plzenskych autoru einen Band mit Autoren aus Pilsen herausgebracht." [From Günter Büsing's Kalenderblatt in Die Schwalbe, April 2007.]
