Fri Sep 7 2007 6:59PM | MsgID: 7563585 It sure is a tricky problem!! Me too I could not see the refutation to 1.Bd4... which would make it a mate in 5! . So I thought maybe the diagram was incorrect until I checked soundness with computer. Actually the problem looks like an elaboration on a mate in 5 (remove g2,h1...) Very witty idea

Here we see a Roman Perilenkung that achieves two aims
