(After Zidek, Linss, and Mlynka it seems that now Drążkowski is the new favorite of Bruno.) The try 1. Rf5? fails to 1.. Ke6! The mates on 1.. f6, Re6 2. Bf7#, Bf3# are transferred in the solution to new black defenses (1.. Nxd3, Nxc4). The key moves to wR down the c-file to c4 to threaten 2. Nc7#. The construction looks a bit to heavy (15 pieces) for the displayed theme. Easy to solve.

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

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.
