The key clears the 7th rank for the wR and prepares 3. b7# after b7 is cleared. The threat is the Q-sacrifice 2. Qxa6+ Kxa6 3. Ra7#. As (in a problem-like fashion) the wQ is let en prise we have 1.. BxQ 2. Rg2 (threat 3. Ra2#) BxR (now Black did the work of clearing b7) 3. b7#. Also 1.. BxR 2. Qe4 3. b7#. Interesting quiet play, showing the two possibilities of a clearance of b7 by Black and White. With the model mates it has a semi Bohemian flavor. 2nd Prize. FIDE Album. Also a solver-friendly problem in which the solver is not distracted by side-play.
