A nice 2# by Gustav Adolf Esketubbe (06-11-1884 , 17-01-1969)


On the 7th October 2012 the solving test shew pb.3 (test #1975) the following :

Gustav Adolf EKESTUBBE
Schackvarlden 1937
(= 9+7 )
‡2 (9+7) C+

1…Rf1 2.R×c4‡

1.S×c4! [2.Bd2‡]
1…Rg1 2.Se3‡
1…Rf1 2.Sd2‡
1…Kb1 2.Bf2‡
1…Kd1 2.Bg3‡

The geometry is very fine with
- good use of white lines h7-b1 & h5-d1 twice each
- good use of the white batteries twice each
- good flight giving key
- good light position

It seems that it might be simply improved (slightly):

Gustav Adolf EKESTUBBE
Schackvarlden 1937 (v)
(= 9+7 )
‡2 (9+7) C+

1…Rg1 2.Qb1‡
1…Rf1 2.R×c4‡

1.S×c4! [2.Bd2‡]
1…Rg1 2.Se3‡
1…Rf1 2.Sd2‡
1…Kb1 2.Bf2‡
1…Kd1 2.Bg3‡

The improvement seems so surprisingly simple, I wonder if the composer could have overlooked it. Perhaps at some stage the diagram was misprinted ? But then, probably another case of chess-blindness.

In these times they did not have a look at such a set play. This might be the explanation.

You are probably right. For changed play, mutate was the preferred form.

...and at the missing set mate for 1...Kd1 :P
Ah well, I'm guilty of more heinous 2# crimes...

A crime ?? I even would not call that a flaw.
