Example text

The threatened check by {KDk1WDN$} the Black R is provided for. Q to g8 or {DW4p4pDW} a8 would clear the way; but we then {WDp)WDWD} observe that, once the Black Q moves, {DWDWDWDW} the S at b5 can no longer attack. We vllllllllV Mate in two need not trouble about Q×P because of the double check by S at g4 (together with the R at h4). Then we note one of the moves of the Black Q which gives this problem distinction. When the Q goes to e4 it gets between the Black P at e5 and the R at e3 which defends it, so that S×P mates (the Q being pinned and interfering with the effective range of the Black R at e3).

Very difficult to solve, it should give a most helpful insight into the matter of Key move probability. A beautiful conception is 226. Mark the way in which the Black P prevents the R from effective intervention in the main variation, and how, on this R moving to d, threatening to pin the White Q, the attempt is thwarted. In 230 there is a recurrence to two long-shot movements of the Q—straight down the file and then to the full extent of the diagonal the foot of which is thus reached. We recall a problem by the late G.

It will be {w0WdpDWd} of interest to composers to know that {griw4wDw} when originally contributed to a tour- {P$w$ndWD} ney years ago a White P, placed on the {DWdwGWDQ} 7th rank at the last moment to shut off {BDWdpHWd} the mate by Q×P, so as to make the rea- {DWhwIWdw} son for the Key less apparent, led to vllllllllV Mate in two cooks. Composers should always take particular care that alterations made just before a problem is sent for publication leave the position sound. The author in his competing days had more than once to regret laxity on this point.
