Experienced solvers know that long more-movers are often easier to solve than three-movers, because of the need to control Black’s possibilities. When, as here, Black can start checking in two moves if left undisturbed, White must proceed with short threats to keep Black tied up, while aiming to induce the decisive weakness.
