Henrik Juel: Natch 3.1 did almost nothing in an hour (2018-12-17)
Mario Richter: It's not surprising that the PG programs have difficulties with this problem. Based on the usual move counting, a human solver almost immediately sees the pattern: Black had to castle queen-side, and to allow this, a white rook on b7 had to shield c8 against the white Bishop on a6. Here the promoted rook on h8 does the job: in a long journey he first moves to b7, then back to the promotion square h8. Altogether this takes 18(!) moves - a new length record according to the award. (2018-12-29)

Judge Michel Caillaud: Dupont theme (= 3 promotions to same unit : 1 Schnoebelen +1 "standard" Ceriani-Frolkin + 1 Pronkin) was done in orthodox form with all kind of units (Rook, Bishop, Knight) except Queen of course as Schnoebelen Queen is impossible in orthodox PG. This is the first fairy example, as far as I know. Realization, displaying clockwork mechanism is faultless.

Judge Michel Caillaud: Promotion play including 1 Pronkin is classical with no strong Immun specificity (in orthodox, promotion on a1 should also be a Queen to reach d3 in 2 moves with wKç3 on the way). Most interesting is the complex manoeuver, including round trips by wK and wQ, with Immun effect (Qé1! for Kd2!), so that wK is secure on due time.

AUW Schnoebelen monocolore. Exquisite! (2013-5-13)
Henrik Juel: Circe cage is defined in an article available on the Retrocorner. Main points:
A cage for a man is an empty square with the property that if the man stood on the square, all of its legal moves would be captures.
A captured man is reborn on any cage, the capturing side deciding which one; if no cage exists, the captured man is removed from play.
A captured pawn may be reborn as an officer on a promotion square, if it is also a cage; the capturing side decides the type of promotion. [Thus Paul's comments after 8.Sxd7(g1=D) and about a posteriori seem incorrect; it is a question of dual prevention, as 8.Sxd7(g1=T/L)? would lead to 11.Txg1(Th1/Lh5)].
I agree with Paul's assessment of the problem (2013-5-13)
François Labelle: I did some A-to-B testing and unfortunately my computer found a dual, replacing 4.0 moves of the author's solution. German notation:
8.Sxd7 [+sBh3] e5 9.Sc5 Dd5 10.gxh3 [+sBg1=L] Db3 11.Txg1 Lxh3 [+wBg4] (2019-9-22)
