Black threatens 1.. d2, unguarding the flight square b4, which suggests the key. It puts another guard on b4 and e5 and sets up the mating threat 2. Nd2+ 3. Bf2#. When Black blocks at d6 with 1.. Rdd6, Rhd6 the twice set Novotny 2. Rf6, Rd7 decides. Another nice echo Novotny problem. 8th All-Union Tourney. FIDE Album. GM Aleksandr Fyodorovich Feoktistov (*28.2.1948), RUS, see wikipedia de, ru.
