"Ill deeds are doubled with an evil word." William Shakespeare (1564-1616), "The Comedy of Errors" act III, sc. ii, l. 20.

An easy Meredith. The key 1. Kf7 creates zugzwang and guards g6 taking a flight. Now 1.. Qxh7, Qxg7+, Qxg8+ 2. Qxh7#, Qxg7#, hxg8N# by underpromotion. Bruno's automatic rating overrates the black checks.

This is the only problem by the composer in yacpdb. No further data found.

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.
