The Weekly Chess Problem, 31st March 2014
Written by Michael McDowell   

C. A. L. Bull (after Sam Loyd)

Natal Mercury, 1915

8/6pK/4p1P1/4P3/2P1kB2/1P1S2p1/4S1Pp/5R1Q

Mate in 3

A three-mover featuring a matrix which was worked on by a number of composers, starting with Sam Loyd, until Lucas Bull found the best setting. Black has only two moves, one of which already has a set continuation prepared. Meeting the other requires some imagination.
