Shown are reciprocally changed mates (2. Ng5# 2. Nxf6#) in try (1. Qc6? c3!) and solution for the same black defenses, the K-flights to g6 and g4. Both the try key and the key create zugzwang. In the side variations 1.. Kxe5, fxe5 the same mates 2. Qc5#, Qe6# follow. The try key in fact looks more problem-like than the capturing key.

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.
