This ist actually a twin problem with (b) wNe2->b6. The key by wNe2 threatens mate in three ways that are separated by the three moves of the bB. Same in (b). Fleck theme adapted to a 3-mover. The try 1. N2e4? fails however to 1.. axb4! which is answered in the solution by 2. Nxb4 (so we have in fact a Karlström-Fleck). The hardness is not higher than two stars.

For biographical data of the composer see the entry from last Friday, June 16.

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.
