Miniature. Chess puzzle. While on 1.. c6 2. Qb6 works, something has to be found on 1.. c5. It is a move of the wQ to the seventh rank creating zugzwang leading to 3. Rd8#. For this the hidden key by the wK is needed clearing the way of the wQ up to h7.

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