    Nice Cycle! Good W piece economy. Unified strategy. All tries and key by WQ. One of the thematic B moves is repeated post key…. But seems difficult to avoid. Anyway, the main interest lies in the try play.

    In the final mate position, the white rook is apparently threatened by the black pawn e2. Can a pawn which cannot move threaten the rook? 🙂
