Well, this may be very easy to solve for a beginner with the key capturing the black Queen en prise (the computer finds that in no time in the blitz mode). Probably this should have been a more sophisticated problem but it ended up in a cook. An anti-problem which Bruno comes up with sometimes to fool and chasten the problemists. - I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes.

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.
