Krabbe's Reprint: "Finally, a 3-move miniature Belén without checking key, was published on the Kibitzer's Café by "vonKrolock's Chess Friend Z. Kornin": White: Ke1, Ra1, Be6, Nb1, Nc5, Pf2; Black: Kc1; 1.Na4 Kc2 2.Nbc3 Kd3 3.O-O-O mate. However, the flight-taking key is bad and worse, it has some serious duals on the second move; 2.Ke2 or 2.Bc4 also lead to (3.Na3) mate which make it in fact incorrect. Joshua Green, who drew my attention to this, notes a wPa3 undoes these duals, but then it's not a miniature anymore. McDowell's, with its checking give-and-take key, is still the best miniature Belén-threemover."
