Shown is a Lacny (cyclic shift of mating moves on the same black defenses) in two phases. In the try 1. Ba4? (zugzwang) N~, Rxc6, Rxe6 2. Nf8#, Qxd5#, Ne5#, but 1.. Kxe6! refutes. In the solution 1. Bf5! (zugzwang) N~, Rxc6, Rxe6 2. Ne5#, Nf8#, Qxd5# and 1.. Kxc6 2. Qa4#. So we have in try and solution the cyclic shift ABC -> CAB with A = Nf8#, B = Qxd5#, C = Ne5#. 1st HM. FIDE Album.
