A simple and nice "classical" 2# :
Good Companion 1921
1st Pr.(= 9+6 )
Flight giving key
changed half-pin mates
all in all 5 mates after self-pins
almost complete black homebase
some nice tries :
but 1…e6! (2.Qc6??)
but 1…B×b7! (2.Q×d7‡??)

I always enjoy seeing these "simple pleasures."
I often wonder: what was (will be?) the last "classical" problem to earn a 1st prize?

There is here yet a small detail...not very "classical"...
The Sa4 has no use in the solution : take it out and the solution is the same !
Is it a defect ? perhaps ... but very very small, I think.
