  Benzol: Problem composed by Yury Randviir in 1989

White to play and win

Apr-21-09  nimh: His first name was Jüri, not such a word mongrel as Yury.

Randviir would surely turn in his grave if saw how or other sites and books misrepresent his name.

  whiteshark: Jüri Randviir (* 28.05.27 - † 08.08.96)

  Benzol: Solution to problem posted on the 21st of April.

1.♖b3 ♘xb3
2.♘d3 and mates next move.

2.♖a3+ bxa3

May-28-09  jussu: If CG, for some reason, has to avoid letters such as ü, then Jüri should be spelled Juri. "Yury" has barely any resemblance to his name.
May-28-09  WhiteRook48: composed, I suppose, and not played in an actual game?
May-28-12  LoveThatJoker: Jiri Randviir, today you are remembered!


Dec-10-13  Granny O Doul: I suspect there are other ways to win from that diagrammed position. Perhaps it is actually a three-mover?
