Miniature. Because of the black threat 1.. Re2+ the wK has to move in the key, but not to f5 (threat 2. Qc6+) as after 1.. Rc2, Re2 2. Nf2+ can be answered with a check 2.. RxN+. Therefore the wK moves to d5 with the threat 2. Qe4+ and the unique variations 1.. Rd2, Re2 2. Qe4+, Nf2+ (Novotny). Good content with only 7 pieces. Originally published in Le Temps, 17.8.1936.

Pierre Biscay (* 14.9.1905 in Levallois-Perret , † 30.7.1969 in Montmorency) French composer. "Pierre Biscay was first a solutionist (French solving champion in 1927 and 1928) and afterwards became interested in strategic moremovers and elaborated theories about the thematical try and the periforms which were publicized by André Chéron in "Les Echecs Artistiques" in 1934. He founded the Union des Problémistes de France in 1935 and was also the president of the French Chess Federation from 1932 until 1954. He was also an International Judge. Four of his problems are quoted on"
