themis(15.12.2013) Superguards miniature with Grimshaw and chameleon echo mates by Themis Argirakopoulos from Greece.


1.Rf4 Rb8 2.Ka3 Kb3 # (3.Bd6?)

1.Bf4 Rg2+ 2.Kb1 Kb2 # (3.Rf1?)

Black's first move combines a line opening for white rook and

a Grimshaw interference. Also ODT and specific superguards

(chameleon echoes?) mates in miniature form. (Author)

Superguards: Any piece (including Kings and pawns), which is observed by another piece of the same colour cannot be captured. Pinned pieces also observe

Nice Grimshaw motivated by Superguards. The line opening by black adds interest though it is necessary to force black move order !
