Serieshelpmate in 7 (b) wSe5 to f5

This week's problem is another change of genre. In a serieshelpmate, Black plays a number of moves in a row (in this case, seven), at the end of which, White mates in one. Black is allowed to capture, but may not give check on any move except his last. This problem is also a twin. When you have solved the above position, move the white knight from e5 to f5, and it is again serieshelpmate in seven.

Any comments or questions on this problem should be addressed to Steve Giddins (our Librarian and Archivist) using the 'Contact' item in the menu on the left.
