    I was shown the following problem about 40 years ago. Unfortunately, I don't know who composed it. I'll post the solution in a few days.

    White to play and win

    Sc6 i K musi bić na a8. Zostanie tam uwięziony dopuki biały K na podejdzie bliżej. Mat S, G i K da się zrobić. Pytanie co z czarnym G który będzie przeszkadzał

    1. Nc6+ is indeed the right start. But if Black's bishop should safely reach the a8/h1 diagonal, White's bishop could not deliver mate along that diagonal. Therefore, White will need to eliminate that piece. How to achieve that is the crux of the problem.

    Now I don't need to post the solution. 🙂

    The only clarification I'd add to the comment by duchess64 is that after 2 … Bg8 3 Be4 Bh7 4 Ne7+ K(any), White plays 5 Bd3 (essentially transposing to the 2 ... Kb7 line).

    I recall how in showing us this problem, George Shrier marveled at how a simplified setting could contain so much content.
