I appreciated the fact that you got a second opinion for what is indeed a mysterious, abysmal position beyond human comprehension, for I ask you: What is this monstrosity we call a checkmate? What is it REALLY?

..and I very much enjoyed the little biopic. :-D No doubt that all of these composers were chess geniuses in their own right.

Congratulations guys- once again, you have impressively uncovered the obscure mechanics underlying this puzzle! (I think)

Oh my, Kamus is going to make me eat crow! I can't find it! I see some mates in 4 but in 3? I just finished annotating 7 games for a magazine and thought this would be a nice break. Yeah, right! My chess brain hurts now. Time to let my movie watching brain take over for a while.

Surprise me Oh Great Problem Teacher!

Ah yes, coincidentally, I rewatched that video last week and even remembered that puzzle, one of my favourites for sure!
