Helpmate in 3

(b) wK on g6; (c) wK on c1

With Christmas approaching, the spirit of generosity overwhelms me, so I am giving you three problems in one. The diagram is a helpmate in 3 (Black moving first, as always in helpmates!). When you have solved that, go back to the diagram, shift the wK to g6, and it is again helpmate in 3. Finally, part c) has the wK starting on c1, again a helpmate in 3. As you would expect, the three solutions are thematically linked.

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.
