Chess puzzle in which wRg1 moves to the 4th rank, half-pinning the bQ, to threaten the pin mate 2. Nb6#. The six black defenses (2. Re4, Rf4, Bxg4, fxg4(f4), Qxc4) create a new weakness (e.g. 1.. Re4 opens the way to d1 for the wQ) that is exploited by White (2. Qd1#, Qc6#, Be8#, Bc2#, Rxc4#).

Jean-Paul Larose. yacpdb lists only a total 6 problems of him (5 from 1996-97).

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.
