Got this one thanks to your (generous) pointer.

I'm not sure I understand #55, I see a simple mate in two that can't be stopped. Are you sure the position you showed was correct and it was White to move?

You're right Zibbit, I have a feeling that that is the hook that Kamus will reveal - he can be sneaky in these.

#54 was a beauty. "Assuming you have looked at this" was way off Kamus! I was befuddled and didn't see the key move at all. Very nice.

I walked right into that one, didn't I?

So, the question becomes, how to anticipate Black's little vanishing act, hmm..

LOL- no shame- you've now joined the swollen ranks of those who have "walked right into that one." I know of no problem that has caused so much consternation among the masses- I'll explain more in Chess Beauty 55. OTOH, I guess you have to get up pretty early in the AM to put one past Zibbit though! :D
