"It really is a nice theory. The only defect I think it has is probably common to all philosophical theories. It's wrong." Saul Kripke (1940-2022) "Naming and Necessity" (1980, p. 64)

Revista Romānă de Şah, 1982. Meredith. Black threatens to escape by 1.. Ka2 2.. Rc2 thus the wQ needs to control the a-file such that on Ka2 mate on the a-file can follow: 1. Qd4 (2. Qg1+ Ka2 3. Qa7#) b6 2. Qh8 zugzwang N~ 3. Qh1+ Ka2, Rb1 4. Qa8#, Qxb1# with the geometric motive of visiting 3 corners, 2.. Nf5 3. Bxf5 zugzwang Ka2 4. Qa8# and 1.. Nf5 2. Bxf5 b6 3. Qg7 (Qh8) zugzwang Ka2 4. Qa7# (Qa8#). An elegant problem.
