Milan Velimirović - 1st Pl. Team Championship of Yugoslavia 1977


In my opinion this threemover is the best example of Rice cycle (Cyclic Zagoruiko) theme and it deserves to be published here:

Milan Velimirović
1st Pl. Team Championship of Yugoslavia 1977
(= 11+14 )

#3

1...Rxb2(x) 2.Be6(A) ~/Bd7 3.Bxf5/Bf7#
1...Qa1(y) 2.c8S(B) ~ 3.Se7#

1.Bd6? [2.Qxf6+ gxf6 3.Rg8#]
1...Rxb2(x) 2.c8S(B) ~ 3.Se7#
1...Qa1(y) 2.Sf3(C) ~ 3.Sh4#
1...Sd7!

1.Bf4! [2.Qxf6+ gxf6 3.Rg8#]
1...Rxb2(x) 2.Sf3(C) ~ 3.Sh4#
1...Qa1(y) 2.Be6(A) ~/Bd7 3.Bxf5/Bf7#
1...Sd7 2.Sf3 ~ 3.Sh4#

Amazing mechanism. wB is always closing two lines (one of bQ and one of bR). All together there are 6 lines. In each phase wB is closing two lines. Black Q,R quits control of one more line and that allows white variations in a cyclic manner. Perfect construction.

For me the chess problem is before all the mechanism, the machine which operates perfectly. The most important thing is to find the answer to the question "how can it work?" or "why it will work?" (or both). When you find it, it's up to you skills, persistence and desire (and often a good luck) when and how you will use it. Well, my "machine" works, but more like the one with the trade-mark "Made in Serbia" than those "Made in Germany" or "Made in Japan". You can hear some strange noises coming from it, as if some parts are scratching with each other (note the double threat). Anyway, I am sure that this problem was one of the stepping stones on the path to the perfect realizations by Mladenovic (also "Made in Serbia!", but this time with no flaws), Lobusov and few other masters. I like to think that (in addition to the ingenuity of Andresson & Ekstrom) at least a small part of my ingenuity is woven into these masterpieces.

Just cant stop admiring it. Such a complex and also simple (once you understand the black errors) mechanism!

Without the white bishop e5 on the board, each of the three white threats can be stopped by both the BQ and BR. The location of the white bishop on e5, or d6 or f4, makes two of these threats unique to BQ and BR, while the third is stopped by both. Once we understand it, the problem is both amazing and simple! Genius at work, both in conception and achieving with a suitable threat and defences! Would have a first prize in any tourney!
