Henrik Juel: Black is missing [Lc8], which was captured on c8, and a rook
Last move was not c3xTb4, because sTc4's check is impossible, so White has the move (2020-10-01)

Originalforderung: "In No. 8397 pieces began game on normal ranks, but not in normal array. The two arrays were however similar, e.g., similar pieces were on c1 and f8. Black has just played his 19th move. What was the game?"
Mario Richter: I do not understand, why 1. ... (Kf8, Te8) is noticed as "0-0-0" (does "Free Chess" have a "Free Castling Rule"?) (2020-09-20)

Henrik Juel: Completing the key isn't legal, 1.'Rd1'/'-bPc5'/'e8S'+, but omitting the promotion in the mating move is, 1.Sxe7+ Bxe7 2.'f8'#. Excellent joke. (2003-09-19)
James Malcom: A very witty joke Valladao! (2020-09-24)
A.Buchanan: Really like this joke (2020-09-25)
Henrik Juel: To see the illegality of completing 1.fxe8=S+?, note the captures:
Black captured fxDe, so [Pg7,h7] were captured on their files, while the other six missing black men were captured by white pawns
The illegality of completing 1.0-0-0,bxc6ep? is rather obvious (2020-09-26)
James Malcom: And for those you don't find it obvious: If the White king hasn't moved, then where did wRa5, and wBb8 if bPb5 has just done a double-step, come from? Neither can be promoted pieces, as White still has all eight pawns. Trying to finish castling and en passant therefore both produce illegal positions and thus cannot be the solution. (2020-09-26)
Henrik Juel: Continuing beating the dead horse...
How does the white player actually perform an entire move?
1.0-0-0+: Ke1-c1 and Ta1-d1
1.bxc6ep+: Pb5-c6 and remove sPc5
1.fxe8=S+: remove sYe8 and Pf7-e8 and replace wPe8 with wSe8 (three fractional actions)
2.f8=Y#: Pf7-f8 and replace wPf8 with wYf8
So a marginally better stipulation might be: 'White to move mates in less than 2 moves' (2020-09-26)
A.Buchanan: I've tried to set up some intermediate diagrams to allow us to show the animation, but the pieces seem to move even for words which are not moves (and marked italic/red). It's quite baffling. It's almost as if someone with privilege has gone in the background and assigned moves to those dead words. If so, that's extremely unhelpful. Gerd was quite active on this site for a month in German lockdown, for which I'm grateful, but one key task is still waiting: to empower the editors by documenting exactly how the animation decides what to do based on the diagram(s) and stipulation. (2020-09-27)
A.Buchanan: The PDB stipulation field should be non-text form to drive the animation. Where the stipulation is non-standard, there should be a Unicode representation of the original, and translations into German, English and French. But cannot overwrite any original non-standard stipulation, in my opinion, as it is part of the composer's work. (2020-09-27)

James Malcom: This is a most excellent problem! En passant as the key and a double pickaninny in a short s#2 is surely no easy feat, I'd say. Now, question: Why can't dxc5 be Black's last move? The illegal retraction od b6-b7 is already quite obvious. (2020-10-24)

Mario Richter: Stellung ist inkorrekt (8 wBB + wUW-L), und die angegebene Lösung paßt auch nicht zu Stellung+Forderung. (2010-01-05)
A.Buchanan: OK there were numerous typos in both the diagram and Henri's solution - which is visible only in edit mode, but it did show the intended plan, and I think I've succeeded in correcting them both. If someone can find Funkschach to check, I would appreciate. This is a nice problem for its time and well worth salvaging. (2020-09-19)
Henrik Juel: Nice that 4.d2xSc3 and 13... b3xDa2 are the only possible uncaptures (2020-09-19)
Mario Richter: Sorry, Henrik, but unless the position is still incorrect, the problem is cooked: there's no need for an unpromotion on a1 and the earlier uncapture of Rook h1 (which would be necessary to provide a tempo move after 11. Sa1-b3):
wCaps: d2xBc3 g6xSh7 f3xSg4

Henrik Juel: You are right, Mario
The problem is cooked (2020-09-20)
A.Buchanan: Can we have wBc3 to e3, removing wLe3 and sBf2. Add sTe1. Yes there is non-standard material but can work on that. Is it sound? (2020-09-20)
Mario Richter: Yes Andrew, your Suggestion (wBc3 to e3, removing wLe3 and sBf2. Add sTe1) makes the Problem correct. With a white double pawn on the e-file the uncapture of a black pawn is impossible (d2xBauer_e3??), so only the intended solution works! (2020-09-20)
Mario Richter: Re-checking Andrew's correction, I have to correct myself: the problem is still cooked:
wPawnCaps: g6xSh7 d2xLe3 f3xSg4
sPawnCaps: b3xDa2 a5xLb4 f2xTg1=L c7xSd6

Sources: Simple Two-move Themes 1924
Years: 1886
Vorweggenommen durch P1022354 , s.a. den Artikel im BCM 1886, S.441ff. Dort heißt es: "In justice to Mr. Rowland it must be noted that he undoubtedly can claim priority of publication over Herr Stahl. The Jamaica Gleaner assumed the contrary—in a recent article—upon the strength of a reprint of Mr. Rowland's version by Professor Brownson, but we have personally seen the Dublin Evening Mail of March 4th, and can vouch for the previous appearance of the position there and then.
It is somewhat curious that two of these, no doubt unconscious, reproductions should have occurred to problems crowned or highly commended in the self-same tourney. The Rowland—Stahl case is not quite so startling as the others, although the resemblance is striking enough and, if known in time, might probably have affected the award. ... the slight deviation on move one in these bi-move problems would rather tend to confirm the notion of deliberate piracy, were they the work of authors unknown to fame. We of course entertain no such suspicion and although the name of K. Stahl is almost unknown to us, yet we plainly see the probability that this composer's work was at Buffalo prior to March 4th, as also the utter unlikelihood he could have seen the Dublin Evening Mail of that date. The foregoing expose will undoubtedly not be without its utility, if composers will read aright the two-fold lesson it conveys. Viz :—First. Do not continue to harp upon old themes in a thin disguise. Let "the Bristol" rest in peace, and disturb no more the bones of "the poor Indian" or such used up subjects as the six move flight square two-mover. Second. Only false prophets tell you the future of the problem art points to positions with few pieces and scant variety. On the contrary, that way lies piracy and consequent mortification of spirit!"

[BCM, 1886, S.70]: "The monthly column is an important feature in a new Illustrated Magazine entitled "The Wanderer," published at Milwaukee, price $1 a year, and devoted to the interests of the travelling public. The Chess contents are so thoroughly good in every way that we recommend our readers to write for a copy ..."

[ACM]: "A marked specialty of his work, which will serve as a faithful index of his style, is his constant predilection to elaborate the powers and functions of the pawn. This peculiarity, conjoined with an active use of the white king, can be traced through many of his finest problems. We will venture to illustrate with a few examples, commencing with the first prize winner of the Wanderer tourney, Milwaukee, 1887."

Zuerst muß man dem schwazen König ein Feld zur Verfügung stellen, damit kein Patt eintritt. Alles basiert auf Zugzwang. Das überraschende Läufermanöver der ersten beiden Züge ist eine Hinterstellung.

Rosalie Fay: 1 ... f5 doesn't parry the threat. 1 ... fxg6 2 c8=B/Sf8 both work, so this line is dualistic. So no Pickaninny and no AUW. (2020-09-26)
A.Buchanan: I've been meaning to ask about threats, and here's a good chance. They are a cool shorthand for many solutions, and some folks have invented themes about them. But (as here) they destroy the logic of many problems where Black has a limited choice of moves, so we shouldn't apply them robotically, imho.
One obvious case is that in a problem where *every* Black move counters the threat, the threat is meaningless. Another obvious case is if it only counters one Black move, then it's kind of lame and again meaningless as shorthand. So unless there is an artificial theme declared with the solution, a threat should not be given unless it works against at least two Black moves.
Here every Black play except for 1... f5 defeats the "threat". Even 1... Kc5 which leads to the short solution 2. Le7# also refutes 2. c8=S. There *is* a theme AUW/Pickaninny, but the symmetric expression of this threatless theme is actually damaged by including a threat in the solution. (2020-09-27)
A.Buchanan: According to the Codex, a directmate or selfmate is unsound if it is cooked [i.e. has a solution that differs in its first move from the author’s solution] or has a short solution or no solution. The gravity of defects such as unintended duals, or unintended multiple refutations of [intended] tries is a matter for a tourney judge.
One issue with PDB is that we do not have a "sound/unsound" field, nor even a keyword for this! But even a brutally dualized problem can never be classified as cooked, and this one is only mildly dualized. (2020-09-27)
A.Buchanan: I am not trying to be "kind to duals" here. They are defects, and I applaud Henrik's analysis of them. Since we are not running a tourney, could we imagine some formula based on the graph structure of the solution which will automatically give us a figure. E.g. dual-less = 0, any dual in 2nd move is twice as bad as a dual in 3rd move, etc? The length & breadth of the problem would has to be a factor. Can we construct an ideal solution, suppressing all duals, and come up with a comparison of that? E.g. sum(i=2..n) (d_i - s_i)/(2^i), where d_i & s_i are the number of dual moves & solution moves respectively occurring at the ith White move. (2020-09-27)
A.Buchanan: I agree with Rosie that 1 ... fxg6 2 c8=B/Sf8 is fatal to the intended AUW. Replacing wSh7 with sBf8 or wBg7g8 does restore AUW, but with an obvious cost. [Legality does not affect soundness, according to the Codex.] As discussed earlier, I think the problem is still Pickaninny as the threat is meaningless. (2020-09-27)

Mit dem ersten Zug fesselt Weiß den eigenen Sf3. Durch die verschiedenen Deckungen der Drohung hebt Schwarz die Fesselung wieder auf und ermöglicht das Matt.
'ASD': "Der Inhalt der Aufgabe ist hervorragend. Die Figur, die den Sf3 entfesselt, wird gleich mit zum Feldverbau benützt. Das Thema ist schwer zu gestalten und bietet immer neue Reize."
1.Preis im II.Internationalen Arbeiter-Problemturnier, Berlin, 1927 (anläßlich der Osterturniere)

PR Klinke: "... inhaltlich und konstruktiv ein Meisterwerk."
PR Loebel: "Ein Stück wie aus einem Guß und von besonderer Schönheit. Der glänzenden Konstruktion und dem reichen Inhalt fügt sich ein wirksamer Schlüssel bei."

2.Preis im II.Internationalen Arbeiter-Problemturnier, Berlin, 1927 (anläßlich der Osterturniere)

Im Ganzen konkurrierten 72 korrekte Probleme in der Zweizügerabteilung. Fünf Preisrichter gaben ihr Urteil nach Punkten ab. Auf den ersten Preis (s. P1240859) einigten sich fast alle, ebenso hatte der zweite Preis einen erheblichen Vorsprung vor den sonstigen Aufgaben ... Wir glauben, daß der Versuch, mehrere Preisrichter zu selbständigem Urteil nach Punkten, die dann summiert werden, zu berufen, im Großen Ganzen geglückt ist.

Nr. 13 in der 'ASD' doppelt vergeben, korrekt wäre Nr. 14

Die Idee besteht in der vierfachen symmetrischen Deckung
'ASD': "Die Preisrichter rühmen bei dieser Aufgabe die Reichhaltigkeit, die gute Technik und die reinen Mattbilder. Tatsächlich finden wir auch Fesselung, Entfesselung, Linienräumung und Feldverbau zu einem schönen Ganzen verwoben. Das Stück hat wohl die Auszeichnung verdient."
1.Preis im II.Internationalen Arbeiter-Problemturnier, Berlin, 1927 (anläßlich der Osterturniere)

[AZW]: die kurze Mattdrohung stört etwas. Ebenfalls reichlich beschickt wie die Zweizügergruppe, bezeigt die Dreizügerabteilung des Berliner Problemturniers, daß unsere Arbeiterkomponisten in Deutschland und Rußland sowohl an Ideenreichtum wie in der Konstruktion es bereits zu hohem Können gebracht haben. Unter den 25 (aus 38 korrekten) zur engeren Auswahl bestimmten Problemen gibt es viele hervorragende Arbeiten, so daß es den fünf Preisrichtern (Borkowski, Hagemann, Kassubeck, Kotrc und Lewmann) nicht leicht fiel, die richtige Reihenfolge zu treffen. Es wurde wieder durch Punktezahlen (1 bis 25) entschieden ...

Die AZW gibt als Autor nur 'E.Löbel' an, könnte also auch Emil sein, die 'ASD' erwähnt noch, daß der Autor aus Dresden stammt..

'ASD': "Die verborgene Batterie links oben weist recht scharf auf die Lösung hin. Der Schlüssel ist leicht, zaubert aber ein sehr schönes Hauptspiel hervor. Alle anderen Varianten aber sind zu stark dualistisc, ja einmal hat Weiß sogar 6 und einmal 8 Fortsetzungen. Trotz der 4 schönen Damenopfer glauben wir, daß die Aufgabe nicht am rechten Platze steht."

1.Auszeichnung im II.Internationalen Arbeiter-Problemturnier, Berlin, 1927 (anläßlich der Osterturniere)
(Turnier in der 'AZW' genannt 'Problemturnier der Arbeiterschach-Internationale 1926-27,
in der 'ASD': 1. Preis II. Turnier der Arbeiter-Schach-Internationale 1926/27)

PR Klinke: "Das Drohspiel ist banal, es wird aber auch zur Nebensächlichkeit durch die vierfache Setzung des Themas, wenn der Themastein verstellt werden soll, und die nochmalige vierfache Setzung des Themas, wenn der Themastein verstellt. Mir ist ein solche Häufung nicht bekannt. ... Im ersten Teil der Handlung wiederholt sich logischerweise der Mattzug viermal auf ein und demselben Feld. Der zweite Teil läßt das zum Mattspiel werden, was im ersten Teil nur Drohspiel war. Eine neunte Variante absolviert der La5."

'VWfS': Schachgenosse Heidrich, welcher zu den jüngeren Komponisten des Arbeiter-Schachbundes gehört, vollbrachte mit dieser Aufgabe eine Meisterleistung."
'VWfS' 16.04.1928: "Der schwarze Turm wurde viermal versteckt und dadurch Le6# ermöglicht. Nun hat diese wunderbare Aufgabe noch die Gegenstärke, in welcher der Turm viermal die anderen Steine versteckt:"
