(July-August 05) issue.

a) bQ could have been captured by wPa and black OOO is always possible!

After 1.fxg7 (threating g8Q#) Blacks can defend by: 1
Nxc6 2.Ke3 OOO
!!! 3. ???

Solution :

1.axb8Q(R)+ Rxb8 2.cxd7+ Kd8 3.fxe7#

b) Here, wPs captured twice, so bRa8 isn’t the bQR and black OOO is now

1.fxg7 (threating g8Q#) Nc6+ 2.Ke3 ! ~ 3.g8Q(R)#

4627. Dmitrij BAIBIKOV

+ wNf7, + bNg7, + bNf5, + bQg5

Retro :
