Though not a Black King-cross, the flights have a nice pattern- c4,c5 and e5,e6. Excellent helpmate!

As usual, these two experts go for the maximum effect with perfect analogy between the solutions. Another great problem!

This is a good helpmate, but it would be even better if all B1 moves would happen to e4.

Well, I have even tried it already and I know it is possible.

Rajendran Raju sends the following problem by Zoltan Labai, The Problemist Sep.2014 for comparison which also shows four unpins.


1. Rd5 Rg4 2. Se5 Rf4#
1. Re4 Bg8 2. Rf6 Rg5#
1. Ke4 Rf2 2. Bd5 Sc5#
1. d3 Sd4 2. Ke4 Rg4#



Another fine problem, but with the black unpin Ke4 repeating in two variations.
[Added later] As Vitaly Medintsev rightly points out, the WB is idle in the 1.Ke4 variation !

Another fine problem

In Labai's h#2 there is an idle WB in the solution starting with 1.Ke4
So, I suppose the problem is not so fine

:sad: Right again Vitaly! Not so fine after all! I have since added the solutions to the diagram.
