Chess puzzle. The key by the wR threatens 2. Re4+ Bxe4(fxe4) 3. d4#. On 1.. Rxc5, fxg4, Nxg4 2. Re4+ 3. d4+ Kd6, Kf5 4. Ne8#, Bh7#. On 1.. Ra4 2. Kc1! (threat 3. Bb2#, not 2. Kb1? as 2.. Rxa3 3. Re4+ Bxe4 and now the d-pawn is pinned) Rxa3 Rxb4, d5, fxg4 3. Re4+, Bb2+ 4. d4#, Bxd4#, Bh7#. The problem is reprinted in "Estudios Artisticos de Ajedrez. Nº 1 – Año 2010 – Salta - Argentina, Problemas de Mario Guido García," as No. 29. Available as a pdf from the website of the Unión Argentina de Problemistas de Ajedrez.
