A typical Bohemian problem without any wPs showing model mates. The key poses the threat of sacrificing the rook and delivering a pin mate with the wQ. On 1.. Nf5, Ng4 2. N(x)g4 leads to a R-mate on h2 and on 1.. Rh4 a Q-sacrifice is decisive. The hardest part is spotting the threat. If you don't see it you won't be able to make progress on the solution. Thus I would rate the hardness by 3 stars.

Josef Pabouček (*3.1.1890 in Kokanda) Czech composer. A collection of his problems "Josef Pabouček, Šachové úlohy, 1925-1937" (Prague, 1937) is available online and also contains a short biographical sketch. Today's problem is listed on page 32.

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.
