Im Original stand der wBf7 auf f6. Dann wäre die Stellung aber illegal, weil alle wBB-Schläge auf schwarzen Feldern erfolgt wären. Deshalb versetzte K.Fabel den wB nach f7 (s. BuB Heft 7, 1971, S.194)

Schlagfälle: d7xLc7, a2xLb3, h2xLg3, e2xDf3. Schwarz kann nicht rochieren, da der sK die sD im Retrospiel nach d8 zurücklassen muß. Weiß kann noch rochieren.

Henrik Juel: The stipulation should be 'h#1 (who?)' I think. 1.0-0-0 Sxb3#, not 0... 0-0? 1.Txg7. Black may not castle, because orig. Lc8 or Dd8 has passed e8. (2004-1-26)

Schwarz kann nicht mehr rochieren. Weiße Schläge: axbxc, schwarze Schläge: axbxc, dxc, fxg2. Der sTg7 kann nicht durch den Korridor nach g1 gespielt werden, da die 2 wTT den Korridor blockieren. 1. Ta8! 0-0?
play all play one stop play next play all
Henrik Juel: The position is illegal. After retracting a wT to h1, a sT to g1, g2-g1=T, f3xLg2, Lf1-g2, g2-g3, wK to e1, and wL to c1, we still cannot retract b2-b3, because then the wD cannot get home. Was this intended? (2004-1-26)
Joost: Black can of course retract b6xQc5 anytime before. (2004-2-2)
Joost: Oops. Sorry. He can't of course. (2004-2-2)
AV: Oui, l'illégalité était intentionnelle. Et la première version était démolie (c'est-à-dire légale !). Un grand-maître du rétro a du mal à créer des positions illégales, même pour s'amuser ! (2005-5-28)

play all play one stop play next play all
Henrik Juel: Orig. Pf7 has moved. (2004-1-26)
Mario Richter: wBh5 is a promoted bishop, wPa2-e/g8 and white double-pawns e2/e5+g2/g6 require the capture of all missing black men. To be available as a capture object, one of the missing black pawns f7 or h7 either captured the wQ or promoted on f1 or h1, in each case destroying White's ability to castle. (2010-7-14)

Henrik Juel: 1.Dxe3/Txe3/Tf1#, 3 solutions. Attempting to preserve the castling fails, because retracting Tf5 to d2 and Dd2 to a8 for unpromotion requires retracting Pd7 to d5. (2004-1-26)

Henrik Juel: This classic seems unsolvable, because both camps have the right to mate, if they can, just after a retraction. And following ... -9.Ke4 Tf3, Black mates with 1... Tc3#. It can be rectified by adding the somewhat lame condition: Black is not allowed to mate; but this would detract from the defensive nature of this problem form. (2005-11-3)
Sally: Weiß will seinen König auf g4 plazieren, um dann mit f5 matt zu setzen. Dazu lenkt er den sT. so, dass er ihm den nötigen Schachschutz gibt. Zurück: 1. Ka8-b8 - Tb7-a7,
2. Ka7-a8 - Tb6-b7, 3. Kb7-a7 - Tc6-b6.....11. Kf3-e3 - Tg2-f2+, 12. Kg4-f3 und vor 1. Bf5#. die sBB. auf dem Damenflügel dienen dem einzigen Zweck, durch ihre Schlagbi-
lanz störende Entschläge des sT unmöglich zu machen.

Welches waren die letzten 16 Einzelzüge?
Henrik Juel: -1.Sc3 a4 -2.Ke1 a5 -3.f2 a6 -4.Sf3 L=h2 -5.Da7 h3 -6.Da8 h4 -7.D=a7 h5 -8.b6xTa7 Ta8. (2004-1-12)
Thomas Volet: The Charosh collection contains this as one of several compositions published in the 1940s (a bunch in FCR November 1949), striving for a low ratio of forced to unforced retractions. MC gives the ratio here as 33/16, and the source as Romana de Sah 1949. (2012-4-10)
Thomas Volet: Oops, my bad. Of course the objective is high ratio of forced to total retractions. (2012-4-10)
A.Buchanan: @Thomas: supplying the context adds so much! Thank you. (2012-4-10)
Alain Brobecker: For example: 1.d2-d4 Nb8-a6 2.Nb1-c3 Na6-c5 3.d4xc5 Ng8-h6 4.h2-h3 Nh6-g4 5.h3xg4 h7-h5 6.Ng1-f3 Rh8-h6 7.Rh1-h3 Rh6-b6 8.Rh3-g3 a7-a6 9.c5xb6 and now the precise retraction is 9... Ra8-a7 10.b6xRa7 h5-h4 11.a7-a8=Q h4-h3 12.Qa8-a7 h3-h2 13.Qa7-e3 h2-h1=B 14.Nf3-h2 a6-a5 15.f2-f3 a5-a4 16.Ke1-f2 a4-a3 17.Nc3-a4

Henrik Juel: White played g6xLh7-h8=T, and wK has moved to let orig. Th8 out and back. (2004-1-12)
Sally: hier geht es zu beweisen, dass nur 1. Tf1! mattsetzt, aber nicht die Rochade. Um die Stellung aufzulösen, muss der wTg5 über a1 nach h8 ziehen und sich dort entwandeln. Dann ist der Zug wB6xLh7 zurückzunehmen, der sTa1 kehrt nach h8 zurück und der geschlagene sL begibt sich nach c8, um die
Rücknahme von Bb7-b6 zu ermöglichen. Aber der wTg5 kann nicht am sTa1 vorbeiziehen, es sei denn, dieser weiche über
d1 aus, was den wK. zwingt zu ziehen. S. 291 Nr 28 Schalbe

Sally: Problem mit Retro Opposition. Zur Stellungsanalyse sei angemerkt, dass die wBBe4/f4/ und g4 je eimal geschlagen, und zwar den sBe, den 2. sT und die auf h1 entstandene UW -
Figur. eine Verführung beszeht darin, einen wS auf b6 zu setzen und mit Sa4 mattzusetzen, eine andere, einen wS. auf e3 einzufügen und mit Sd1 mattzusetzen. In der Lösung wird
der S. tatsächlich auf e3 eingesetzt, aber Schwarz ist am Zug und setzt mit Dxd4#. Die Rücknahme veräuft zB. wie folgt: 1. Sf5-e3 - De3-d3, 2. Sh4-f5 - Dd3-e3,.....
12. Bb3-b4 - sh1-g3, 13. Bg3-g4 - Bh2-h1S, 14. Le6-h3 -
- Bh3-h2, 15. Bh2xSg3, und die Stellung wird frei. Setzt man den S. auf b6 und nimmt, mit Schwarz beginnend, in ähn-
licher Weise zurück, so benötigt man den Tempozug Bb5-b4 nicht uns scheitert trotzdem am Retropatt! S. 292 Nr. 30

0. ... g4 (Zugzwang) 1.hxg4#
play all play one stop play next play all
AZW: 1. hxg6ep# Das sieht man auf den ersten Blick und hohnlächelt über den Problemredakteur, der einem solche Nichtigkeit vorsetzt. Aber gemach: erstens müßte bewiesen werden, daß der letztvorangegangene Zug von Schwarz g7-g5 war. Doch nehmen wir sogar an, das sei wirklich geschehen. Da taucht sofort eine zweite Frage auf: Wie viele schwarzen Steine mußten von den weißen Bauern geschlagen werden, damit sie in ihre gegenwärtige Position gelangen konnten? Rechnen wir nach: e6 kommt von der b-Linie, was drei Schlagfälle erforderte, f7 von der c-Linie (ebenfalls drei Schlagfälle), f3 von der e-Linie (ein Schlagfall, h4 von der g-Linie (ein Schlagfall) und h7 von der d-Linie (vier Schlagfälle). Das gibt zusammen zwölf Schlagfälle, Schwarz hat noch vier Figuren auf dem Brett, also könnten wirklich zwölf von Weiß geschlagen worden sein. Wenn jedoch der sBg5 unmittelbar vorher noch auf g7 stand, war der Lf8 eingesperrt gewesen und nie ins Freie gekommen, hatte also unter gar keinen Umständen von einem wB verspeist werden können. Daher ist die ganze Stellung theoretisch unmöglich und widerspricht den Spielgesetzen, es sei denn, man läßt zuerst Schwarz ziehen: 0. ... g5-g4 wonach 1. h3xg4# Matt folgen kann. Das allein ergibt die den Spielgesetzen entsprechende Lösung.
Henrik Juel: The above is a try, I believe; wP's captured all missing black men, including orig. Lf8. Solution: 0... g4 1.hxg4#. (2004-1-12)

Im 2. Fall war der letzte Zug e7-e5 und die Rochade ist nicht zulässig, weil der Lh4 eine Umwandlungsfigur von g1

nicht; denn es kann nicht nachgewiesen werden, dass der Bauern - Doppelschritt (e7-e5) der letzte Zug war, wie es

Laut Fabel-Projekt handelt es sich um die Korrektur von Weihnachtsnuß III (Schwalbe XI-XII 1953).
hans: bBa4 looks impossible to get there. We need all pieces for the three captures of white and black. (2011-12-9)
Henrik Juel: What is the problem, Hans?
White captured g2xh3 and hxgxh and promoted on a8 and h8; Black captured axb and exdxc, so all missing men were captured by pawns.
I expect the resolution involves extracting a white rook via g1, like in the many other retros with a similar matrix.
Without a black bishop on a4 the resolution seems rather simple and relatively fast, whereas the stipulation suggests lots and lots of waiting retractions by the black king. (2011-12-9)
hans: I spoke too soon, but your suggestion is wrong, white captures are gxh and hxgxf=B and this Bishop goes to b8, for b2-b3 can only be played after bBa4 is arrived. And I found a solution, only cost 52 moves after c4-c3. The position after that last pawn move is wKb4, Qf8, wRa3, wRa2, wRb2, wSf3, bKh1. First Sf3 to f1, to block and for the last moves Sf1-g3+ Kg2 Sh1. (2011-12-9)
hans: I count 91 bK-moves. Here a possible game started from PAS: 1. h3 e6 2. h4 Qg5 3. hxg5 h5 4. g6 h4 5. Nc3 h3 6. Nd5 h2 7. Ne3 Rh3 8.

Alfred Pfeiffer: Was ist das für eine seltsame Forderung?
Was bedeutet "Typ Taylor"? (2009-10-23)
Henrik Juel: The stipulation stands for series-self-retro-stalemate, I think: White retracts 29 moves (no uncaptures) (in a series without Black intervention) to reach a position where White retractions are no longer possible (except uncaptures). The Taylor type may refer to the no uncapture rule. (2009-10-23)

Yoav Ben-Zvi: The analysis above shows that since BRg2 could have come from g4 in 1 step or 2 either side can be on the move and mate in 1.
The primary thematic content of this fine problem is not affected, it can be shown by the stipulation: "What promotion moves were played?".
Before promoting WB on g8 Pg7xf6 must release Bf8 for capture by Ph2. This locks the East cage so promoted WB prevents BB from reaching g8. Therefore:
WB was promoted on a8; BPa7,b7 made three captures to clear the way for Pa2 and promote to BB; WPh2 promoted on g8 since it cannot be captured by BPs.
The promotion to BB is done from a2 not c2 as Pc2-c3 is needed for a later tempo move.
Solution: WPg7-g8=N, WPa7-a8=B, BPa2xb1=B

To keep the #1 move WBg6 to h7, WNb1 to g6, BPb5 to b4

Yoav Ben-Zvi: On further review the East cage can be released by retracting WPd2-d3 followed by removal of WBf1 and BQg1.
In this case WBc1 was captured at home and BPa7 promoted from a2 (after the capture of WPa2). This ruins my suggested correction above.
