Juraj Lörinc, 2nd Prize 6th TT Chess Composition Microweb C 1.4.2001 - helpmate section, Notes: C052 Sent: 344, fairy h#3 can be found here.

The tourney asked for antibattery mates and I couldn't resist to try to transform one of my older h#2 schemes (see e.g. my 3rd HM feenschach 1993) into 3-move form. Mating moves are battery & anti-battery at the same time.

Personal rating: B.

I composed this selfmate together with a few others for Wola Gulowska 2001 whose fairy section asked for se#2 in Anticirce. However I had not a lot of good ideas and indeed I think this s#2 was the best among them. It isn't bad, it isn't anything marvellous, well, perhaps it is at least original... Black royal battery is guarded by two white Queens, one of them hides away in try or key, the other one sacrifices itself in the threat and after run of bK to a flight given by try and key. It is important to note that the squares for queen hideaway are also precisely determined thanks to Anticirce.

Personal rating: C.

Black king wants to be mated by wR, but he cannot immediately enter mating squares e4 and f4 as they are guarded by pawns patrolled by white light pieces. That's why they must be captured first, then bK moves and finally Black blocks f5. Problem full of analogy and Patrol chess effects.

Personal rating: B.
