 Bohemian problem with model mates. How to solve it? The wQ is attacked so the first question is if we sacrifice it or move it away? Well, the first option ist more problemlike. But then on 1.. NxQ a mate has to be provided. The idea is to put in the key the wR in ambush on the third line. Then 1.. NxQ 2. Na3+ Kb4 3. Nxd5#. We also have a quiet threat 2. Rxf3. So lets stick to it and work out the variations for 1.. Rxc2, Rd2, Re2, Kd3, d4. "The key is not so nice, but the variations more than make up for it." 1st Prize. Reprinted in Czech Album (19791981)
