soroka(16.10.2014) Very nice selfmate with three variations with creation of white batteries and model mates by Ivan Soroka.








   1.Rda5! (zz)

1...Bg2 2.Qg7+ Kd6 3.Rd8+ Ke6 4.Bd7+ Kd6 5.Bxg4+ Kc6 6.Bxf3+ Bxf3#

1...Kd6(b7) 2.Qd5+ Kc7 3.Qc5+ Kb7 4.Bc6+ Kc7 5.Bxf3+ Kd7 6.Bxg4+ Bxg4#

1…Bf1 2.R8a7+ Kd6 3.Bc5+ Ke5 4.Re7+ Kf5 5.Bf2+ Bb5 6.Re2! fxe2#


Three harmonic variations with creation and play of white batteries, the first two ofthem with a play of Siers battery creates echo. Very interesting is the 3rd variation withsilent move 6.Re2! Three model mates in very economical position and flight-givingkey. (Author)

It would be useful to specify rooks moving in the key and in B2 of the 3rd variation.

Very pleasant problem.

Juraj, you are right!

I ask Diayan make this correction in the solution.

1.Rda5! instead 1.Ra5 and in the 3rd variation 2.R8a7+ insead 2.Ra7+
