Twin problem: b) Move h2 h3 c) Move h2 h4 d) Move h2 h5. All showing the interference of the bB by the bR such that 2. Nxb6# becomes possible.

Ladislav Salai Sr. (* 19.8.1934 in Lučenec, † 25.3.2006) Slovak composer. "He was an orthodox and fairy composer. He invented the fairy condition SAT which is described in details by Juraj Lörinc on his website and he was the editor of the magazine 'Umenie 64'." (From chesscomposers.blogspot.com)
"More than half of his output of around 700 compositions consisted of 2-movers, and he won some 130 tourney honours. He was very active as an editor (of 'Mat-Pat' 1983-96 and 'Umenie 64', 1996-2006), as a tourney judge and as a writer of numerous articles. He was the inventor of the fairy form SAT, of which he composed around 100 examples." (From his obituary in "The Problemist," May 2006)
His son Ladislav Salai Jr. (* 18.1.1961 in Zvolen) is Grandmaster in both composition and solving and a "renowned composer of cyclic problems."

before my seeing comments: My solution [arrived to through the 32-pixel, B&W, restartable-moving-pieces setting]: in view of the possibility\s: pawn move that needs a black defense blocking another black defense\ \ ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, it seems [ reverification is intended later on] that white's fseven starts - to mate with promotion after black-bishop move [or mate with knight\ ]

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.
