Adriano Chicco (16-02-1907 - 30-08-1990) Italian composer and International Master

Adriano Chicco [Wikipedia]


Adriano Chicco is the author of over 500 problems and IM in chess composition. He took care of the Problems section of L'Italia Scacchistica during 16 years.

He gave his name to a twomover theme also known under the name of Moscow:
White threatens a double check. The battery front piece aims on a unguarded field F. Black parries by interposing on the double check line by a figure that also opens a guard line to F by line opening. The parry introduces any error. You can find an example here.

Let's start with a reflex-mate that was published in the FIDE Album:
