In the try 1. Qf7? Qf3! there is a mate for all four defenses of bPe7, a so-called Pickaninny: "A problem in which, at some point in the solution, a black pawn on its starting square makes each of its four possible moves (forward one square, forward two squares, capture to the left and capture to the right)." In the solution White threatens a discovered check mate by 2. e3#, in the variations the other three moves of this wP are shown 1.. Qf3, Qd3 2. exf3#, exd3#, and 1.. Qh7! 2. e4#, an Albino (all four possible moves of wPe2). So we see all possible moves of a white and a black pawn, uniformly after an introductory move of the wQ on the same file, an interesting task. HM. FIDE Album.
