Steve Giddins’ Weekly Chess Problem…

Steve Giddins has a weekly column over at TheProblemist.org which is well worth a look.  Each week sees a new problem posted for readers to try and solve, with the solution following a few days later.

The position below is this week’s problem, a helpmate with 2 solutions.  (Usually in a helpmate, Black moves first but in this one it is White.)  Both solutions are 6.5 moves long, with White moving first and mating Black on his 7th move.

For the solution and for further details please check out the full column here.
