There is an entry on "Čeņeks Kainers" in the Latvian wikipedia.

A Bohemian problem without any wPs displaying model mates. The key activates the wRh2 to build a BR-battery, threatening 2. Bc7+ but this threat is easily defended e.g. by 1.. g5. So there is another hidden threat, the Q-sacrifice 2. Qd5! On the remaining defenses 1.. Rxa5, Kc5, Nd4 there follows 2. Bd6+. Though the key is straightforward it may take some time to hit on the threat 2. Qd5.

Čeněk Kainer (* 22.5.1883 in Holešov, † 22.3.1945 in Podhradní Lhota) Czech composer. His obituary was published in Šach, 1945, p. 115 (available from the site "Chess Problem Links" of Václav Kotěšovec).

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.
