Henrik Juel: Here is a stab at the part A questions
b2-b3, sDe1-f1, wTf1-g1; sKb2-a1-b2, wKd1-c1-d1, sLh2-g1-h2
Finding the length of the shortest proof games is too difficult for me (2020-04-10)
Mario Richter: But making a guess based on the wording of the stipulation "less than 92.0" is easy: probably 91.5 moves ... (2020-04-13)
Henrik Juel: Very good, Mario
What does the asterisk mean? Many other possibilities?
Yoav's favorite theme: Lc1-b2-g7-c3 making way for Db2-f6-c6-h1 (2020-04-13)
Mario Richter: I'm using Chessbase light as my virtual chess board, the "*" (which I forgot to delete) simply is its way to indicate: "end of the game string". (2020-04-13)
Yoav Ben-Zvi: A minor modification of Fabel's P1355497 (positions of wQ, bR, wR on h1, h3, g2 are switched cyclically) leads to a claim of a new record for minimal length of a capture-free game and, for any SPG, unique move-sequences by wQ and wB showing Bristol clearance.
An additional Classical RA element: What move must have been played (in any proof game) that is longer than 1.5 squares. (2020-05-04)
A.Buchanan: Very impressive. Isn't any knight move e.g. Sb6-a8 longer than 1.5 squares at sqrt(5) ~ 2.23? (2020-05-04)
Yoav Ben-Zvi: Noting Andrew's comment above I suggest changing to "What move by White must have been played (in any proof game) that is longer than 1.5 squares". This can be extended (for the ambitious solver) to all mandatory moves that are longer than 1 square, which requires a deep analysis without move counting. (2020-05-06)
Keywords: Last Move?, Non-Unique Proof Game, Move Length Record, Capture-free, Bristol (QB)
