This week, we feature a moremover by Scottish composer Brian Edwards. Brian is a
regular attendee at BCPS weekend meetings, and has just self-published
Bedwards Best, a nice little collection of his problems, which includes direct
mates, helpmates, selfmates and reflexmates. This moremover is taken from the
British entry for the 7th World Championship Composing Tournament.
Solution to be published on Friday 15th August.
White has to work round Black’s potential stalemate after 1...d4, which he
does as follows: 1.Bxa3 d4 2.Bd6 cxd6 3.Rdc1 dxe5 4.Rc5 e4 5.Rf5 e3 6.0–0–0#; 3...d5
4.Rc2 dxc2 5.Ke2+ c1=any 6.Rxc1#
