In fact, an Indian with critical square b4. The key is the critical move of the wR beyond b4 which is then occupied by the wN avoiding stalemate and preparing the discovered check mate.

Good chess puzzle. Working with zugzwang a NR-battery (putting the wR into ambush behind the wN) is created that mates on c2. Meredith. Victor Holst (16.8.1844-25.3.1924), DK, "composed direct mates and wrote some articles for "Skakbladet" at the beginning of the 20th century. He was the problem editor of the "Familie-Journalen". He gave his name to the Holst theme: a thematic try fails due to a black promotion; during the solution, White's foreplan forces the black pawn to make a promotion different from that in the try and then White can apply the main plan of the try, which now works."

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.
