before my seeing comments: My solution [arrived to through the 32-pixel moving-pieces setting and submitted in a style the honorable problemist was imitating on 2018-11-09 08:29:17]: to mate with queen in second move [or after black king \ black queen defence] move then rook check, white’s qbeight starts

A white rook cross with the addition of Loyd's organ pipes is also shown in Davidenko's 1st Prize in '64 Shakhmatnoe obozrenie', 1984, which was awarded the maximum of 12 points in the FIDE Album. This problem was posted for solving by Bruno on May 26, last year.

There is an error in Bruno's diagram as a bPc6 is missing! Now 1. Qb8 also carries the devaluing threat 2. Qb6# which would be prohibited in the correct version. In it the threat is only the R-sacrifice 2. Rxc4+ Kxc4 3. Qb4#. And on 1.. Qc3, Be3, Bf8 2. Rb5+, Ra4+, Rb3+ (here also the quiet dual 2. e3 works). Shown are model mates and a wR cross. Special Commendation.
