Problem 473: Zivko Janevski - Helpmate
janevski(14.12.2014) Zivko continues to delight us with another special Anticipatory Selfpin - this time combined with Umnov, self-pins on the same square and white Grimshaw!







473. Zivko Janevski (Macedonia)
H#2   Two solutions   (5+8)
1.Qd4  Bc2 2 Kc5  Bxe4#
 1.Rd4  Rc2  2.Ke4  Rxc5#
A diagonal/orthogonal setting of black square vacation, with black anticipatory self-pin on the same square, reciprocal changed black and white arrival squares (e4 & c5) in 2nd move, white Grimshaw and battery pin-mates! (Author)

Probably, an improvement of author's older work:

The problem 473 is clearly better with selfpins on the same square after both thematic black pieces play on the same square on the 1st move. Also better construction of course.

Thanks Vitaly for pointing out a precedent.

The new problem shows a reduced idea of the older one.
I don't see "simpler" as clearly better, although it's very nice.

Reciprocity of bQe7/bRf3 makes a more complex thematic mechanism.
