before my seeing comments: My solution [arrived to through the 32-pixel, B&W, restartable-moving-pieces setting and submitted in a style the honorable problemist was imitating on 2018-11-09 08:29:17]: to pin west bishop to mate with queen after black west rook east move [or else to rook\pawn\north-bishop mate], white's rdeight starts

The key pins bBd5 with the threat 2. Nf3#. The black defenses are either unpinning wQ or wRe3 or unguard e5 which White utilizes for a suitable mate on e4, d3, or e5. Already handled in the set are the black checks on c2 or e3.

Ferenc Böhm (* 1911 in Pestszenterzsébet, † 1944) Hungarian composer, for more biograhical details see the Hungarian site "a fasizmus áldozata. 1929-ben jelent meg első feladványa. Elsősorban a kétlépéseseket kedvelte. Kimondottan a hipermodern iskola híveként úgy tartották róla, hogy mindig egy-két évvel a divatos eszme előtt járt. Ennek ellenére feladványainak eszméje könnyen megérthető, amit versenysikerei igazoltak..."

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.
