3rd HM Bakonyoszlop C 30.4.1998

a) 1.d6 Sxg6 2.c6 Bb6 3.Re6 c4#
b) 1.Re5 Sg2 2.c5 Ba5 3.d5 c3#

Representing of Black & White pawn moves with Black battery play and line opening of the first moving piece.

Very fresh idea of movement of whole line of black units 1 or 2 squares together. If only Re7 could be pawn...

h#3 (6+9)
b) d5 -» d4

b) 1.Rg4+ Qc3! 2.Bf6 Qb2 3.Bg5 Qh2#

Simply motivated, but nice tempo moves by white queen. Of course, far echo model mates.
