Daniel Novomesky

Slovak composer that recently returned to composition after long, many years lasting, break. He specializes in h# and now (in 2001) more accurately in h# with echo mates.

1...Kh6 2.Kf5 Sg6 3.Ke6 Kg5 4.Kf7 Kh5 5.Kg8 Se5 6.Kh8 Kh6 7.Rg8 Sf7#

1...Kf6 2.Kh4 Sf7 3.Kh5 Ke7 4.Kg6 Ke8 5.Kh7 Se5 6.Kh8 Kf8 7.Rh7 Sg6#

Funny position: both non-capturing legal white moves are keys of solutions. But the rest isn't trivial, e.g. in both solutions there are tempo losing moves by wK.

h#6,5 (2+2)
