Serieshelpmate in 4: (b) wRf5

This week’s problem is a serieshelpmate. Black plays four consecutive moves, at the end of which White can mate in one. Only the last of Black’s four moves may check the WK. The problem is also a twin. When you have solved the diagram position, replace the WBf5 with a WR, and it is again serieshelpmate in four.

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