Sally: (Matt in 3 Zügen durch 1. Txb8, aber Matt in einem Zug:
1. Baxb5 en, passant. Retroanalyse :
Bb7 - Bb5 war der letzte Zug von Schwarz!
Bb6 - b5 , La7 - b8, Kc8,d8 - c7 zuletzt wäre illegal. (2010-7-9)
Henrik Juel: Black captured [Lf1] on f1, d7xe6xf5xg4xh3, e7xf6, and h7xg6, accounting for all missing white men, so last move was not a6xb5, Kc8xc7, or Kd8xc7. If last move were Kb7-c7 or Kd7-c7, White pawns would have to have captured cxdxc6, d2xe3xf4xg5xh6, fxg, and hxg, accounting for all missing black men; but [Pa7]'s destiny makes this impossible: it was not captured by a white pawn, nor did it capture. If last move were e7xf6, Lb8 would have to be [Pa7]/[Pc7] promoted on a1/c1 without further black captures; but this would entail one too many captures by white pawns, because [Lf8] was captured by an officer. So last move was b7-b5. (2010-7-9)

AB: Is this really cooked if properly declared as RV?
1 Qd4! if kside not ok, 1 Qg5! if qside not ok, and both solutions work if neither castling ok. This latter overlap is not a defect, in that both winning lines are otherwise forced. Or is there some other winning line that I am missing? (2001-10-17)

"The No-move Problem"
U.S. Chess Association, Lexington, 1891

Black resigns. What was White's last move?
Henrik Juel: If the check were to be explained by a7-a8=L, b7xa8=L, or b7xc8=D, White would have made 10 pawn captures, which is impossible, because [Lf8] was captured by an officer. So wK delivered the check, implying an ep capture: -1.Kf3xPg3 f4xPg4ep -2.g2 etc. (2010-7-9)

Sally: S.95 Eigenartige S. Aufgaben (W. Keym)mit Beweispartie! (2010-6-26)
Frank Müller: In BCM 1894 lautet die Forderung: Kürzeste Beweispartie. Loyd selbst hatte eine Lösung in 53 Zügen, doch Mr. Dudeney und Mr. James White fanden Lösungen in 50 Zügen. Somit stammt zwar die Stellung von Loyd, nicht aber die beim Keym zitierte Beweispartie. (2011-5-4)
Mario Richter: In seinem Buch "Sam Loyd and his chess problems" (1913) stellt White das mit der 50-Züge-Lösung anders da:
[Zitat]In 1894 the New York State Chess Association held its midsummer meeting in Buffalo. For the solving contest Loyd furnished a puzzling three mover, given as No. 197 (s. P1046651 ). But the position on account of which the meeting will be long remembered was No. 113, offered as a "Souvenir Problem" for the solvers to take home and study. The Pawn position in No. 197 was very forced in appearance, yet it is one that can readily be derived from actual play. In No. 113, on the contrary, the setting is to all appearances more natural, yet it is a most puzzling one to arrive at. Three months were allowed for solutions, and the prizes offered were ultimately won by E. Olly and P. Richardson, who showed the possibility of the position in games of 51 moves each. Loyd's analysis required only 50 moves. He sent it to me right after the meeting: "I enclose my latest Looking Backward problem, with the solution, which I consider the best thing I ever produced in the chess line. Play the game over and you will be surprised to find that the unique tours of the two Kings are absolutely necessary, and not a single one of the captures on either side can be changed. It is quite a new method of proving that a Pawn had to move two squares on its last move."[/Zitat] (2011-5-6)

Als Schachgedicht "Loyd und der Pigeon" von C. Kupffer im Deutschen Wochenschach 24.11.1907 (Quelle: Sam Loyd und seine Schachaufgaben, 1926, S. 469)

Loyds englische Formulierung der Forderung: "If both parties make the same moves, how can the first player mate in four moves?"

in 'Ruy Lopez' abgedruckt in der Rubrik "Partidas de fantasia"

Originalabdruck in 'Le Sphinx' in der Rubrik: "Questions du Sphinx" mit folgendem Text:
"Deux joueurs sont en présence et se disposent à commencer une partie. Celui qui les Noirs ne connaît rien du jeu; mais, après s'être donné comme très-fort, il n'a pu se dispenser d'accepter le défi. Il s'est dit en lui-même qu'il lui suffirait, pour se tirer dèmbarras, de copier exactement tous les couops de son adversaire. Le joueur qui a les Blancs, ayant flairé le manége, jouen en conséquence et donne le mat au quattrième coup.
Comment, les Blancs ayant le trait et les Noirs jouant les mêmes trois premiers coups que leur adversaire, celui-ci peut-il obtenir le mat en quatre coups?"
Frank Müller: Im American Chess Journal 1876, Seite 48, wird nur die Lösung mit 1. c4 genannt. (2015-2-23)
Henrik Juel: The third solution is similar to the first, so they are probably a sort of cooks, later promoted to solutions.
1. d4 d5 2. Dd3 Dd6 3. Dh3 Dh6 4. Dxc8# (2015-2-23)
Henrik Juel: After the re-numbering it is solutions 2) and 3) that look like cooks (2015-2-23)
A.Buchanan: I don't think this is a fairy: I think it's just a conditional problem. If it was a fairy, then it would be cooked by e.g. 1. Sa3 Sa6 2. Sb5 Sb4 3. Sc7# since Black cannot continue to imitate White. (2018-9-2)

Yoav Ben-Zvi: What is the most simple stipulation that makes the solution unique?

My candidate: "Shortest game ending in Stalemate, given that White has not moved a Pawn after his fourth move"

I would add the length of the composer's solution as a courtesy to solvers: "Game in less than 10.0 moves ending in Stalemate, given that White has not moved a Pawn after his fourth move" (2012-8-27)

Zwillingsbildung von Anthony John Taffs, American Chess Bulletin, 1960

Loyd: "Castling is most excusable in a neat little position like No. 656, for the reason that it is well concealed, and yet there are so few pieces and such a paucity of attack, that a solver is soon convinced that something must be done."
White: "The 'neat little position' here referred to has become one of the world's famous problems. It was published before Loyd was sixteen in four move form, No.655 [s.P1147545], and later a move was cut off as Loyd came to realize the importance of not extending solutions beyond the number of moves requisite most sharply to illustrate the theme treated. The Pawn added at g3, to replace the Black Bishop, prevents a clever second solution by 1. Tg1+.

Loyd (zitiert in 'Sam Loyd and his Chess Problems'): "No. 487 shows the pinning style as introduced in the waiting class of problems. It is one of my favourite two-movers, being a bifurcated theme, where either Queen or Bishop must remove their protection, leaving the other piece paralysed by the discovered pinning of the White Queen.

Loyd's Orgelpfeifen, Version zu P1046523

A.C. White in 'Sam Loyd and his Chess Problems', S.317: "LOYD'S ORGAN PIPES.
I DO not remember who the German critic was who first called Loyd's famous two-move Black interference scheme the Organ Pipes, but it was a very felicitous description. Those four Black pieces have all the dignity and symmetry of an organ standing out against the wall in a large room dotted over with interested Kings and Queens, Bishops and Knights, as stately an audience as ever listened to the new melodies of John Sebastian Bach when he played at the Court of Weimar.
And Loyd's Organ theme sounded a note no previous composer had ever struck. The sixteen year old boy discovered that, by doubling up, as it were, the simple interference which Nowotny had presented three years before, the most complex of all the fundamental two-move themes could be obtained. He presented it first as No. 452 (P1046523); but two years afterwards he lopped off the rather featureless initial move (Boston Gazette, 1859). "It is excellent as a two-move problem" Loyd wrote twenty years later. "The entanglement of the Rooks and Bishops is odd and pleasing; but it was greatly marred by adding the third move, which is a dull and inappropriate sacrifice of a Rook, adding nothing to the merit of an otherwise pretty problem. A unique idea of this kind is always spoiled by any building up of moves or tacking on of variations that draw your attention from the main theme. Some problems should not be difficult; they are admired because they are funny" (Str., p. 35).
For Loyd the Organ Pipes were hardly a theme. They were an "idea" for the interpretation of the general theme of Black interference play. The use of this "idea" by Taverner [vermutlich P1022415] and others appeared to him an infringement of authorship. The problem world on the whole has decided otherwise. The Organ Pipes are distinctly a theme. They are capable of very varied interpretation. Even Loyd himself showed in No. 454 (P1020202) how elaborately they could be worked up. "I give No. 454," he said, "to show how this simple little idea may be elaborated upon; whether judiciously or not,I submit to the judgment of my readers. I will only say that the position is not calculated to fascinate persons with an artistic eye, no matter what the impression may be after having solved it" (Str., p. 69).
To Loyd belongs all the credit of discovering the Organ Pipes but they have now become public property, and the many versions that have appeared (or at least all the meritorious ones, such as the beautiful series constructed by H. W. Bettmann [s. Pxxxxxxx - evtl. in der 'Pittburgh Post Gazette', ca. 1913]) are fully entitled to rank as independent work. No more striking example could be found to illustrate how, through frequent use, an "idea" rises to the dignity of a "theme" (see p. 203).
For those who are interested in the Organ Pipes let me refer to three articles I have written on the theme, two in the 'British Chess Magazine', August, 1909, and May, 1912, and one in the 'Wochenschach', 25th February, 1912. In all of these I tried to show that the true scope for novel presentments of this theme lay in discovering new relative positions for the Black King with respect to his Organ Pipes, and further that these relative positions are mathematically demonstrable and that they form an accurate locus on the board."
und auf S.215 heißt es:
"For only a couple of his problems did Loyd ever get into discussions, but for these he was never weary of arguing. No. 452 (P1046523) and the famous prize-winner of Taverner [vermutlich P1022415] were like red rags to him. He would claim absolute ownership of the Organ Pipe intersection in conversation, or in print, or in writing, by the hour, on the slightest provocation."

Was die Frage nach dem Urheber des Terminus "Organ Pipes" [Orgelpfeifen] angeht, s. auch die Anmerkungen in Steven Dowds ["SBD"] Artikel "Sam Loyd's Organ Pipes and Benko's 45th Anniversary" (https://www.uschess.org/content/view/11701/666). Das dort aufgeführte Argument, daß Frank Janet eher nicht als dessen Schöpfer infrage kommt, da dieser erst nach 1875 geboren wurde, muß aber nicht stimmen, vielleicht war er nur der erste, dem diese optische Parallele auffiel - s. Anmerkung zu P1274795.

Schachhistorisch interessant bleibt es also, herauszufinden, wann, wo und von wem dieser Begriff zuerst verwendet wurde ... (kleine Diskrepanz am Rande: A.C. White war auch Co-Autor von "Simple Two-move Themes" 1924, wo es auf S.150 heißt: "... the double Grimshaw with two adjacent pairs was called the Organ Pipe theme by Loyd."

SBD: Pal Benko asked I write an article for his 45th Anniversary on the organ pipes. I don't think I was the perfect candidate, but the result won a small award in the yearly competition for the online journal:

https://www.uschess.org/content/view/11701/666

I dearly hope a real expert writes the definitive modern article on the organ pipes soon. (2013-10-28)

A.C.White in 'Sam Loyd and his chess Problems': "It was not Steinitz only that Loyd loved to try to catch, it was all humanity, or at least all that part of humanity with whom he came in contact. He always had a problem or two up his sleeve, adapted to the calibre of his audience. Probably No. 9i, simple little twomove position though it looks, caught more solvers than any other single problem of his. Its very simplicity attracted hundreds to attempt it, and when at last the utterly unexpected checking key and unique en-passant mate were discovered there followed an irresistible impulse to go and catch some of one's own friends with it."

Loyd in 'Chess Strategy': "... the solution does not show any great merit, yet from the reason that it appears to be anything but a checking problem, it is the most difficult two-move problem I have yet composed."

'DAZ' 08.10.1921: "Wer wollte die Schönheit dieser Aufgabe mit der Behauptung beanstanden, daß eine Lösung nicht mit Schach anfangen dürfe? Sie darf es nicht nur, sie muß und soll es sogar bisweilen."

A.C.White: "LOYD lived up to his profession that others were welcome to reproduce and improve his themes better than some writers are wont to do.
There are dozens of instances on record where his problems closely anticipate later work by other composers, but I have seldom found that he made any objection thereto. On the whole I think he had a certain feeling of pride that others should follow in his footsteps twenty or fifty years after him. More than once I have shown him versions by distinguished modern composers, and he would laugh and say: " Has So-and-so really just published that ? Why, I made it when I was eighteen." It is impossible to refer to all these cases in such a book as this. No. 273 is a single striking instance among many, which I discussed at some length in the British Chess Magazine for February, 1910."

'NY Saturday Press': "Mr. Samuel Loyd has very kindly selected from his own original problems the following two-move enigmas [dieses, P1020169, P1357959, P1020194 und P1019634], and placed them at the disposal of the 'Saturday Press'. Persons not far advanced in chess will find them useful subjects of study." ["original" wird hier offensichtlich nicht im Sinne von Urdruck, sondern originell oder "seine eigenen" gebraucht ...]

MZ (50): Die Dame und ihr Kavalier ('Gehört zu Sam Loyds ersten Kompositionsversuchen')

veröffentlicht unter dem Pseudonym "by Mr. H.F.V. of New York";
das in 'Sam Loyd and his Chess Problems' angegebene und von vielen Sekundärquellen übernommene Urdruckdatum 19.02.1857 ist falsch! - Damit wohl auch MZs Annahme, daß es sich um einen der ersten Kompositionsversuche Loyds handelt ...
Mario Richter: Das falsche Datum aus 'Sam Loyd and his Chess Problems' hat seinen Weg in viele Nachdrucke und Datenbanken gefunden (z.B. '2345 Chess Problems', Anders Thulins elektronische Ausgabe der 'American Chess-nuts', YACPDB [id=15386] etc) (2018-11-12)

A.C.White: "... Funniest of all, however, is the withdrawal key to No. 421, and its effect is heightened by the odd grouping of the men and the total absence of Pawns. The position is not difficult to solve, for if the Queen leaves C2 she must move to some position where she can capture if Black checks on h2, but a good joke does not suffer because it is quickly understood."

Loyd: "The result of Pawn Knighting in No. 614 is hidden, from the fact that any promoted piece will be liable to capture, so that it looks as if claiming a Queen must be the more forcing of the two. In reality a Knight promotion threatens nothing; but it resolves the position into a waiting one, and Black has to move into a mate" (Str., p. 156).
Und A.C.White ergänzt: "This try 1. P=Q+ [b8=D+], in No. 614 is an unusual one in that the Bishop defeats it, not by the direct capture, 1. ... BxQ, but by the simple interposition, 1. ... Bd8."

A.C. White: "He [Loyd] cared little for the means he used, so long as his results were successful. And, strangely enough, it almost seems as though his results were increasingly successful and all the more artistic when he took the most radical liberties with the conventional theories of composition. ... It is certainly not considered good form to reply to a check by Black with a direct capture. To do so is recognised as crude, obvious and unscientific. But Loyd's genius thought little of theory, giving all its attention to practice. And his results justified his independence. These problems are among his very best. The key of No. 581 is one of the most puzzling in all two-move composition, subtle, artistic and scientific in the highest measure; and the mates blend with it most beautifully."

Loyd in 'Sam Loyd and his ...' S. 157: "I have often expressed the opinion that it is no easy task to compose a good two-move problem. It should have a decided point, a well-defined theme with a sparkle to it; and the difficulty should consist in the surprise of the trick, and not in the mere trouble of selecting the correct key-move. I consider No. 160 good, because it has a point that will impress itself favourably upon the memory of the solver."

in 'Chess Monthly' veröffentlicht unter Pseudonym: "By W. King, of New York"

Loyd: "In a two-move problem the public will be more lenient [hinsichtlich eines 'crowded chess-board']. A graceful position is always preferable ; but if a few extra handfuls of pieces will add to the beauty of the trick, or to the difficulty of solution, why, scatter them broadcast or pile them up in unnatural columns, as in No. 241. It does not make much difference; the merit of being in only two moves has struck the popular fancy and covers a multitude of sins, which would not be so readily forgiven in a more pretentious composition."

Version zu Loyd's Orgelpfeifen (P1019649, s. dortige Anmerkungen)

'Sam Loyd and his ...' gibt "L'Univers Illustre 1867?" als mögliche Quelle an - da hat die Erinnerung (irgendeine frz. Quelle irgendwann um 1867) wohl einen Streich gespielt ...

Im Abdruck in 'Le Sphinx' fehlt der wBb6 - wann wurde dieser hinzugefügt?

Die Hinterstellungskombination, erstmals von Laws dargestellt, wurde von Loyd unter dem Namen "American Indian" populär gemacht. Die vielen überflüssigen Steine hat Loyd aufgestellt, um die Stellung als Partiestellung erscheinen zu lassen und das Lösen zu erschweren.

Loyd in 'Chess Strategy': "The object of a problem, therefore, being to capture and mate the King, we find a peculiar beauty and difficulty in moves that have an adverse tendency. Take for example the question of capturing the King, we find that a move that frees, instead of confining the King, gives a brilliancy and difficulty to the position that could not be obtained through the medium of any other key move. In 406, the King, being already hedged in, it makes a very pretty key move to give him five avenues of escape."

Alfred Pfeiffer: Sam Loyd wrote about such dead-head black pieces: "They give the solver something to occupy his mind, and add to the element of difficulty more than they retract from the neatness of position." [A. C, White: Sam Loyd and his Chess Problems, 1913, p.245.] (2017-3-6)
A.Buchanan: Thanks Alfred, I hadn't heard that before. Issue here is that far from being a "difficulty weasel" :-), sTg5 makes the problem easier because it tells us that wTf4 can't make the key move. (2017-3-6)

Loyd/White in 'Sam Loyd and his Chess Problems':
Loyd: "No. 136 is one of the first problems I ever composed. It is No. 150 in Strategy. I give it to illustrate revising one's problems. It shows how the lad who made it just slipped up on not getting on to the right idea. It has been published for over fifty years with a Black Knight on b1. Solution then would be: 1. Qb8, RxQ; 2. Se5. But the real theme of the position has never been published; indeed I only noticed it this morning. The idea is that if 1. Qh2, Ra2 defeats it. Therefore there should be a Black Bishop at b1, which brings out the true mainplay: 1. Qb8, Ba2 ; 2. Qh2! I only saw this is time to make a silly problem a good one before closing my problem career."
White: "The last words were almost prophetic. A year later the news came of his death, at his house in Elizabeth, New Jersey, on the morning of April 1oth, 1911."
Henrik Juel: Correct key by Popeye 4.61, but damaged by duals, e.g.,
1... Le4 2.Sf7+,Se5
The variation 1... Lf5 2.Sf7+ is dual-free (2015-9-15)
Olaf Jenkner: Nach 1. Db8 droht dreifach 2. Sf7+ Kh7 3. S3g5#, 2. Se5 oder 2. Dxa8.
1. ... Le4 verteidigt nicht gegen die forcierte Drohung 2. Sf7+. Was keine Verteidigung ist, kann keinen Dual haben. (2015-9-15)
Henrik Juel: The notion of dual is ill-defined, when there are several threats, Olaf
By your reasoning 1... g3 2.Sf7+,Dxa8 is not a dual, either, so the only duals would be mate duals
I think I mentioned the 1... Le4 variation to point out the error in the official solution (2017-1-25)
Sally: Das erste Auftreten von Sam Loyd mit 15 Jahren lässt bereits seine Löwenklaue ahnen. (2018-12-31)

Laut Simchovich im 'Kal. Schachmatista' kann die störende Wirkung des wL dadurch versinnbildlicht werden, daß man ihn vom Brett nimmt. Dann hat man ein (korrektes) #2 mit dem Schlüssel 1. Db7

A.C.White: "This No. 500 did not satisfy Loyd, because the key threatened the rest of the theme-play too clearly. It was readily changed by him into a waiting-move problem, No. 501 (s. P1052020), where the purpose of the key

aus "Sam Loyd and his Chess Problems":
"CHARLES XII. AT BENDER."
The most famous of the Fiske-Loyd stories, and probably the best problem tale ever written, is the sketch: Charles XII. at Bender.
It has appeared in print, since the original publication in the Chess Monthly, in March, I859, in every conceivable form and language.
In the volume of Fiske's Tales are mentioned the translations into Swedish verse, by J. G. Schultz i868, into Danish i876, into Italian by M. Monzecchi igoi, and into Icelandic i9oi, and certainly other renderings abound. J. A. Miles put the story into English verse in his Chess Gems, 186o. "Much of the interest attaching to the piece," wrote Mr. Fiske in 1901, "is owing to the problems, which form as it were the gist of the narrative. They were suggested by the writer of the sketch to Mr. Samuel Loyd, the most ingenious and brilliant of all problem composers, who was then in his eighteenth year. The three problems were soon forthcoming, composed in a single afternoon."
The story introduces an imaginary incident during the siege of Charles the Twelfth of Sweden by the Turks at Bender in I7I3. Charles beguiled this period by means of drills and chess, and used frequently to play with his minister, Christian Albert Grothusen, some of the contests being mentioned by Voltaire. One day while so engaged, the game had advanced to the stage represented in P1030415, and Charles (White) had just announced mate in three. Scarcely had he uttered the words, when a Turkish bullet, shattering the window, dashed the White Knight off the board in fragments. Grothusen started violently, but Charles, with the utmost coolness, begged him to put back the other Knight and work out the mate, observing that it was pretty enough. But another glance at the board made Charles smile: "We do not need the Knight. I can give it to you, and still mate in four!" (P1037289). Who would believe it, he had barely spoken when a second bullet flew across the room, and the Pawn at h2 shared the fate of the Knight. Grothusen turned pale. "You have our good friends the Turks with you," said the King, unconcerned, "it can scarcely be expected that I should contend against such odds; but let me see if I cannot dispense with that unlucky Pawn. I have it!" he shouted, with a tremendous laugh, "I feel great pleasure in informing you that there is undoubtedly a mate in five" (P1159789). Nor would Charles permit Grothusen to leave till he had solved the problem.
It is perhaps not very remarkable that the minister, fearful of a repetition of such chess battles, left the encampment the next day and joined the Swedes, who took sides with the enemy.
In the original three-mover, F. Amelung has pointed out, in the Baltische Schachblätter, i900, that if the first bullet had destroyed the Rook instead of the Knight, Charles would have had an equal opportunity of showing his analytical powers by announcing a mate in six (P1159308)!

A.C.W.: "The key of No. 418 (=P1043893) always reminds me of that of No. 625, for in both, after the key-move is made, there is a White Bishop bottled up in one corner, apparently incapacitated from taking any further share in the action. But the keys themselves are the very opposite of one another. In No. 418 it is the Rook that interferes with the Bishop in its effort to reach its most effective station; whereas in No. 625 it is a case of a Pawn promoting to a Bishop on a square where it seems quite useless. Of the two, No. 625 is probably the better, and Loyd always spoke of it as one of his favourites among his 'funny problems'. ... Here the Pawn claims a Bishop on the corner square, where the other Pawn apparently prevents the possibility of its moving.
In compiling my Promotion Book last year, I found no promotion move in all the vast array of positions which I examined any more startling than this."

Henrik Juel: The C+ label is debatable, as there is only one dual-free variation in this gem:
1.a8L Ke8 2.Ke6 Kd8 3.g8D# (2012-1-23)
Erich Bartel: wenn Schwarz so spielt, dass Duale möglich sind, ist das
meines Erachtens eine schlechte Verteidigung. So gesehen ist
die Aufgabe dualfrei und das Label C+ gerechtfertigt.
Siehe dazu auch meine Anmerkung zu der P0000570.
Natürlich ist mir klar, dass es hierzu auch andere
Auffassungen gibt. (2012-1-24)
SBD: That just doesn't make sense. In that case you could just have all sorts of duals in all sorts of problems and simply attribute them to poor defense. But Black defends only as he can. 1. .. Kf8 is a perfectly viable defense, as good as any other, and it allows 2. b8=D+ or 2. b8=T+. If we only allow those defenses that give a unique dual-free solution, we have what are simply bad helpmates. I don't think that not marking this C+ diminishes in any way what was a phenomenal achievement at the time. (2012-1-24)
Thomas Volet: It seems to me that 1....Kf8 is precisely the response that defeats 1.b8=S, and thus is arguably the most important response. That strikes me as much more important than whether there is a choice in the second promotion. I don't know what quality C+ signifies, but if the absence of that quality would have deterred publication, we should be thankful that it was unkown to Loyd. (2012-1-25)
Olaf Jenkner: Es sollte in der PDB drei Möglichkeiten geben:
1) cooked
2) C+
3) C+ mit akzeptierten Schwächen

3) bedeutet, daß der Computer alles geprüft hat und
dann der Mensch entschieden hat, daß die Aufgabe
trotzdem als korrekt gelten soll.

'DAZ'-Lösungsanalyse: "Wß. darf den K nicht auf die g-Linie lassen, wie man sich schnell überzeugt. Die D darf also nicht ziehen. Anderseits droht sich Schw. durch f5-f4 patt zu setzen. Man erkennt aber auch, daß, wenn nach 1. ... f5-f4 dem K das Feld e3 zugänglich gemacht werden könnte, die D auf d3 matt setzen würde. Nun ist das Feld e3 von L und S zugleich gesperrt. Soll der K es gleichwohl betreten dürfen, so muß Wß. L und S ziehen. Man könnte an 1. Lg1-h2 denken, um nach f5-f4 2. S bel. Ke3 3. Dd3# fortzufahren. Wenn aber auf 1. Lh2 Schw. Ke4 antwortet, stellt sich heraus, daß der L auf der Schrägen g1..a7 gebraucht wird. Der Gedanke, L und S nacheinander von dem Felde e3 zu entfernen, muß also verworfen werden. Es bleibt nur der Versuch, sie durch einen Zug gleichzeitig von der Deckung des Feldes e3 abzulenken. Das ist nur durch die Anwendung des indischen Manövers möglich, d.h. man muß den L so ziehen, daß der S durch Besetzung des Durchschnittspunktes von S und L beide Steine kaltstellt. Dieser Durchschnittspunkt ist b6."

in 'Sam Loyd and his ...', S.287 (Abschnitt "The Indian Theme III") wird die Konstruktion dieses Stücks ausführlich beschrieben. Das Thema wird dort als "passive sacrifice" [= "the surrender of its powers and activities by any piece (usually White), without its actual removal from the board by capture.]" beschrieben.

'DAZ' 19.09.1922: "Die in diesem Problem zuerst dargestellte Kombination der Ausschaltung zweier die Mattführung hindernder Figuren heißt das Opfer der Wirkungskraft."

... unser diesmaliges Problem, eine bis zum heutigen Tage in gleicher Vollkommenheit von niemandem anderen erreichte Leistung.
1. Ke2!! Dieser Schlüsselzug, der den wK aus relativer Sicherheit in einen Wirbelsturm von tödlichen Gefahren führt, wirkte zu seiner Zeit geradezu sensationell. 1. ... f1=D+ 2. Ke3 Schwarz hat nicht weniger als zehn Schachgebote zur Verfügung und wird dennoch im darauffolgenden Zug selber mattgestetzt. Ein Genieblitz, wie er nur dem Genius eines Loyd gelingen konnte (AZW). [vgl. P1050959]
Motto: Steinitzgambit

Die Zeit (Wien): Nach langer Pause hat Samuel Loyd wieder die Schacharena betreten. In den letzten fünf Jahren hatte er fast unausgesetzt mit mathematischen Geduldspielen und Problemen der "Arithmétique amusante" sich beschäftigt. Mitten in diese Studien traf ihn, wie Alain C. White berichtet, die Einladung zur Teilnahme an dem Problemturnier der kanadischen Schachzeitung "Checkmate" (in Prescott, Ontario, Kanada). Da setzte sich der große Maestro noch einmal ans Schachbrett und improvisierte in nicht ganz 15 Minuten - kaum glaublich und geradezu unfaßbar - das nachstehende geniale Opus, das von den Preisrichtern mit dem ersten Preise ausgezeichnet wurde.
...
Die geniale Aufgabe zeigt uns, daß Loyd trotz seiner 63 Jahre noch immer imstande ist, durch seine Kompositionen Aufsehen zu erregen. Mit dem ersten Zuge setzt sich Weiß drei, mit dem zweiten elf Schachdrohungen aus! Die Züge sind daher nicht bloß unwahrscheinlich, sondern anscheinend ganz verwerflich. Mit Recht sagt daher die "Petersburger Zeitung": Die wenigen Löser, denen die Lösung gelingen wird, werden über den Lösungsgang nicht wenig verblüfft sein und in ihrer Überraschung vergessen, die Aufgabe in bezug auf Mattreinheit und Ökonomie der Mittel zu prüfen.

Über dieses Problem schreibt A.C.White in 'Sam Loyd and his Chess Problems': "Few events during the last ten years of Loyd's life gave him as much pleasure as his winning the first prize in the Novelty Tourney of the little Canadian magazine Checkmate. It was the first problem tourney that I had promoted, and he responded to my request for an entry with the greatest alacrity. By return of post came the Steinitz Gambit, composed in the cars on the way down-town to his office.
I was not surprised, seeing the startling originality of the theme, when the judge, Geo. E. Carpenter, awarded it the prize; and Loyd was delighted about it. "I am greatly tickled to think of it as the prizewinner! Just think of its being nearly fifty years since I began taking prizes and am still able to keep it up. I really think that I can compose or solve as quickly as ever, but unfortunately I have so little time to devote to it that there is not much probability of my adding much to my collection" (L., 11th November, 1903).
My account of the rapid composition of the Steinitz Gambit was generally questioned in Europe. It was decided that the problem could not be an impromptu, and that I must be very gullible to accept it as such. I mention this to show how little Loyd's genius was understood by those whom he used to call the "careful critics." The chief trait of his genius was its spontaneity, and this resulted, as I have explained before, in frequent inaccuracies and in occasional lack of finish. These faults we readily overlook in view of the unfailing freshness of treatment which they produced. I had to send the Steinitz Gambit back to Loyd twice for minor repairs, before it was completely sound. "I thought that Black Pawn Queening," he wrote me, "was such a strong defence that no one in his common sense would look for any other!" (L., 15th April, 1903).
His own criticism of the Steinitz Gambit was as follows "The originality of the problem is due to the White King being placed in absolute safety, and yet coming out on a reckless career, with no immediate threat and in the face of innumerable checks. The freedom of the& Black King to move, or to capture the Knight, constitutes a pretty feature of what may be looked upon as a remarkably bold theme" (MS.).
The motto of the problem would give the solution away immediately to any player familiar with the Bishop's Gambit; but problemists in general would probably not remember that the distinctive move, constituting the Steinitz Gambit, is 5. Ke2! Loyd knew it only too well from experience, as the first time he ever saw the opening played was by Delmar in the memorable third game of their match in 1879 (p. 73)."

'DAZ': "Wir können das erste Jahr unserer Schachspalte nicht würdiger beschließen, als durch die Wiedergabe zweier der schönsten Probleme des amerikanischen Meisters [dieses und P1020183]"

Motto: "A Bold Attempt is Half Success"

'Sam Loyd and his Chess Problems': Loyd won his first real prize under 'Miron [Hazeltine]. The 'Saturday Courier' did not live to publish its own award, but Hazeltine began his famous column in the 'N.Y. Clipper', and the 'Courier' Tourney was continued therein ..."

Originalquelle also vermutlich 'Saturday Courier', im 'Clipper' nachgedruckt mit dem Motto: "A Prize Problem" und folgender Bemerkung: "This gem of chess strategy was received by us, but not published , while connnected with another paper. It was in competition for a prize, and for this problem our ingenious young contributor will receive that prize the first Wednesday evening on which he can make it convenient to attend our private chess soirees."

Ungewöhnlich: die sonst übliche Veröffentlichung der Lösung im 'Clipper' nach einer Woche wurde verschoben, weil anders als sonst keine Leser-Lösungen eintrafen ...
