The tries 1. d4?, f4? fail to 1.. Rxe5! Nxe5! Also attacks of the wQ or the wR do not work: 1. Re4? Bxe5! The good key happens at another part of the board and threatens 2. Nb6#. Shown is (among others) a Stocchi-block on e5: A neutral black mass on e5 would allows all three mates 2. Qd3#, Qf3#, Nf4# and these mates are separated by the black captures on e5. Not that easy to solve as the key ist well-hidden. FIDE Album.
