Shown is the paradoxical Dombovskis theme in a miniature setting. The tries 1. Ra6?, Rc6? threaten 2. Be6#, Bc2# but fail to 1.. Kc4!, Ka4! In the solution 1. Rg5 (zugzwang) the mates from the tries follow just on their refutations from the tries 1.. Kc4, Ka4 2. Be6#, Bc2#. Published in Schach-Magazin 1989.
