     This is a problem I composed thirty years ago. It is not-so-loosely based on a firstprizer by the great Greek-Russian composer Avenir Nikolaevich Popandopulo:

    My problem is two moves longer (mate in 7) and also, richer in content. Unfortunately, there is a dual on the third move, which I could not repair, and renders the problem useless for a prize at a competition.

    The solution is quite difficult. Try it!

    important fact: most of us aren't morozevich.

    that seemed impossible, although I didn't try to solve the puzzle.

    This is a chess problem, which is completely different from practical play.

    It would me more suitable to say "most of us aren't Murdjia".

    From the known Grandmasters, John Nunn is an extremely good solver (although he mostly specializes in endgame studies).

    Very good.  I needed help on three moves.

    A good puzzle. But from the puzzles I saw from you, you use the knight and bishop most and not a queen or rook. That is what makes them good and hard.
