before my seeing comments: My solution [arrived to through the 32-pixel, B&W, restartable-moving-pieces setting]: in view of the possibility\s: queen moves first \ , to mate with north knight after black-bishop northwest move [or to mate with north bishop\queen\ north knight\ ], white's qhfour starts

The key creates zugzwang in virtual and real play, in the try 1. Qg1? Bh2! with the albino on a B-cross 1.. Be3, Be5, Bxg5, Bg3 2. fxe3#, f3#, f4#, fxg3#. In the solution the key creates a half-pin on the 4th rank now again with the B-cross and changed mates 1.. Be3, Be5, Bxg5, Bg3 (Bh2) 2. Qh8#, Ne6#, Nxg5#, N(x)g3#. Side variations are 1.. N~, a5, d5 2. B(x)c3#, Nb5#, Bc5#. FIDE Album. Reprinted in Mike Prcic's collection and in "The Problemist," May 2008, p. 374, where David Shire presents a partial anticipation by H. van Beek, Haagsche Post, 1921, 2nd Prize. Also Meson mentions a substantial anticipation by Valentin Viktorovich Lider, Shakhmaty v SSSR, 1974, Commendation.

Виктор Иванович Чепижный (* 18.2.1934 in Dnipropetrovsk) Russian composer and Grandmaster, see wikipedia de, fr, it, lv, ru. "Viktor Chepizhny is the 12th composer with most points in FIDE albums." "Mike Prcic has published in 2007 a collection of 600 problems of Chepizhny, also with some biographical data. He lives in Moscow since 1959. From 1968-1973 he worked for the chess magazine 64, later he worked for the chess section of the publishing house Fiskultura i sport. From 1982-88 he was vice president of the PCCC and from 1980-89 an official of the central commission of chess composition of the USSR."

Since the opening in October 2000, I had published online more than 6650 free chess problems. If you want more details, look at my chess figures pages.
