There is an error in Bruno's diagram as a bPc6 is missing! Now 1. Qb8 also carries the devaluing threat 2. Qb6# which would be prohibited in the correct version. In it the threat is only the R-sacrifice 2. Rxc4+ Kxc4 3. Qb4#. And on 1.. Qc3, Be3, Bf8 2. Rb5+, Ra4+, Rb3+ (here also the quiet dual 2. e3 works). Shown are model mates and a wR cross. Special Commendation.

Фёдор Васильевич Давиденко (*19.1.1952 in Leninsk-Kuznetsky) Russian composer and International Master, see wikipedia lv, ru.
