# Asorski Original Chess Problem No. 41

Hello this is my 41st Chess Problem here at CHESS.com:

An Asorski Original

If Bg1 then I think Rd3 delays mate.

Lincolm, Dangcit is correct. 1. Bg1! Rd3!!

I can't seem to find a way to cover both d3 and d4 so as to cut off escape routes.  Each time I cover those spaces I end up opening others.  This is a hard one, Asorski.

Now I got it. First I was thinking about 1.Qc5 threading 2.Nf2#. But black can defend with 1...Rd4!! making an escape route for the king. But 1.Qa7!! pins the Rook (so after 1...Rd4 2.Qxa7):

Great puzzle Asorski. This is one of the best puzzles I've ever seen.

DangCit recognizes the difficulty of this problem.

Adriandmen, not only you have posted your solution, you also provided a diagram for this problem. I feel that you are happy solving this problem.

CONGRATULATIONS to Adriandmen and Geticus. Both solvers found the key move but Adriandmen got it first! The two of you will receive a trophy!

Always good problem you made there.

Thanks, just as good as your comment!

Nicely done, Adriandmen.  I looked at Qa7 but missed the Qh7# if Rd4.  And nice puzzle Asorski.
