Meredith. This is relatively hard to solve as there are many closely failing tries. The thematic try is 1. Re3? (threat 2. Nf3#) Bxd4, Kxd4 2. Re6#, Qb2# but 1.. fxe4! In the solution we have 1. Qb2! (threat 2. Re6#) Bxe4, Kxe4 2. Nf3#, Re3#. So in try and solution there is a change of threat and mate [Nf3# Re6#] for distinct black defenses (Pseudo Le Grand) in the first variation and an exchange of key and mate [Re3# Qb2#] for distinct black defenses (Pseudo Salazar) in the second variation. In the solution all black defenses are captures of wPe4. FIDE Album (2+3+3 = 8 points).
