The tries 1. Nd7, N5c6? fail to 1.. Rf4, Bf7! In the solution we see the cross check 1.. Rxd4+ 2. Nd7# The move Qe6 occurs as mate in the first try after 1.. Rxd4, as threat in the second try and as key in the solution: Urania theme. In addition, Nd7 occurs as try key and mate in the solution, and N5c6 as try key and threat in the solution. FIDE Album (3+4+3 = 10 points).

IM Yuri Akimovich Sushkov (*3.2.1938), RUS, "is a prolific twomover composer." A twomover theme was named after him.

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.
