I remember seeing a chess problem once that I cannot find. I think that I saw it in a YouTube video, but I seem to find it again.
The theme of the puzzle, I think, was something like caging in the Turkish king. The puzzle was mentioned as being old in the video.
Some details of the position are:
-The end position is a smothered mate in which a White knight checkmates a Black King that is surrounded by 8 black pawns on each of it'a adjacent squares.
-During the solution, White forces Black to make some of the Black pawns to make captures to surround the Black king.
Here's something of a case example that I made:
[FEN "8/2pKN3/Q3ppp1/2ppk1p1/4pR2/3P1P2/4N3/8 w KQkq - 0 1"] 1. Qd6+ cxd6 2. Rf5+ gxf5 3. d4+ cxd4 4. f4+ gxf4 5. Ng6#
Does anyone know of the puzzle that I speak of? What is the source?
