-e5xQf4 1.Ke6 Qf7#

-g4xQf3 1.c5 Qd5#

-d7xQc6 1.Ke6 Qé4#

4403. Wolfgang DITTMANN

-1.Rd6-d1! (threating -2.Bc5-a7 and 1.Rd8#)
-1. ..... Rc1-g1 (refute the threat; because after -1...Ba1-b2 the mat is possible:

-2.Rd1-d6 and 1.Bc5#, or -1.Bc1-b2 -2.Bc5-a7 and 1.Rd8#)
-2.Rd1-d6! (surprising switchback threating -3.Fe8-c6! and 1.Kg7#)
-2. ... Bc3-b2 (only move ovoiding the threat, the Bishop is looking now on e1 but loose control on c1 !)
-3.Bc5-a7 and 1.RxRc1(Ra1)# (because c1 square stay free)
