    Brilliant. So many things happen on the last move. The motive for the B2 move becomes only after the mating W2 move is played. Unraveling it is the interesting part of the problem. I will let the others look at deep !

  2. Hubert Gockel says:

    The allure of irreversible neutral mating moves – a prime example for Franz’ jubilee tourney!

  3. Hubert Gockel says:

    Additional note: the mentionned jubilee tourney is for helpselfmates (2-4 moves) only, see

    Just a little improvement is made right on the diagram published, nRh5 moved to g5, bBg4 replaced with bPg4.
