Cook: R: 34. ... Lc7-d6 35. Bd6xDc5 Db4-c5,Db3-c5,Db5-c5 dann 1. Dxb7#
Mario Richter: How about R: 34. ... Lc7-d6 35. Bd6xDc5 Db4-c5, 1. Dxb7#? (2021-02-16)
A.Buchanan: Well spotted, Mario. The first 33.5 retractions are clear but then there is a bit more flexibility. Can sLg7 be shifted to b6? I don’t think it’s actually needed in the former location. (2021-02-17)
Mario Richter: For me, this dual makes the problem cooked.

I think that shifting sLg7 to b6 doesn't help (e.g. it allows the Bishop to uncapture the white pawn ob a5) (2021-02-17)
A.Buchanan: Sorry I wasn't trying to imply that the "flexibility" is tolerable: it's definitely cooked. Without the clock ticking for the mate, there is no unique retraction at all, as Black pieces can just wander all over. I don't suppose we can shift sBb7 to b6? (2021-02-17)
Mario Richter: No, shifting sBb7 to b6 allows a black rook to temporarily occupy b7, thereby giving wLd6 the opportunity for tempo moves, e.g. R: 1. ... Tc7-c8 2. Ka8-b8 Tb7-c7 3. Lb8-d6 Kc8-d8 4. Ld6-b8 Td8-d7 5. Lc7-d6 Te8-d8 6. Lb8-c7 Td7-b7 7. Ld6-b8 Kd8-c8 8. Kb8-a8, dann 1. Lc7# (2021-02-17)
A.Buchanan: I have some other ideas: but even I can see that none of them work. OK this one is cooked. (2021-02-17)
