James Malcom: It seems to me that this masterful problem is cooked, because the final position is illegal?! (2020-11-07)
Henrik Juel: The animation does yield an illegal position (with wD enclosed on g8)
I believe that the retroplay is incorrect
It gives the uncastling earlier than stipulated (2020-11-07)
James Malcom: Yes, the retorplay is actually 49 moves, not 50-I based it on han's now hidden comment. However, without access to rhe relevant issue of Die Schwalbe-it is not on Vaclav's link page-I know not or can guess the true solution, but surely it is on the same as the current pseudo-try. (2020-11-08)
James Malcom: Wait-I think that the solution is that it must be Black to move first! Just figured this out after last comment. Lemme try out the retro animation. (2020-11-08)
James Malcom: And indeed it does work! Having Black move first later saves them from an illegal tempo move that encloses the White queen from an illegal cage drom which it can never escape. A very exquisite trap for any retro solver! (2020-11-08)

a) zuletzt h6-h5 und beide Rochaden sind noch möglich. Schläge von Weiß: Bbxc, Bcxd, Bhxg, Bfxg-g8=L.
b) gegenseitiger Ausschluss der beiden Rochaden. 3 Fälle sind zu betrachten:
b1) zuletzt f7xDe6; Weiß muss 4x geschlagen haben: Bfxexdxc8=L, d.h. s0-0-0 ist unzulässig.
b2) zuletzt d7xDe6; zu den 4 Schlägen von a) wird auch der sBf gebraucht, der sich auf f1 umwandeln muss, also w0-0 unzulässig.
b3) zuletzt h6-h5: wBf zieht über f7 zum UW-Feld g8, g.h. s0-0-0 unzulässig.
Henrik Juel: C+ Popeye 4.61 after analysis (2020-10-30)
A.Buchanan: A very harmonious problem. Suppose that both sides retain castling rights. wLh3 is obtrusive, so wBf/h promoted via g7, and escaped via e6 so sBe6 came from d7 later. Wh has made at least 4 pcs, while Bl has made 2 (D & Lc) dxe6, gxh6. If last move was dxe6, then sD & sLc were captured by officers in cage. Thus sBf was captured by wB, and therefore promoted on f1, disrupting wK. Therefore the last move was h6-h5. In (a) there is no problem retaining both castling rights, but in (b) Sg8 must have reached that square via f6 *after* the promotion, disrupting bK. However in (b) the castling rights are incompatible. In (a) 1. 0-0? Lxc5! 1. Tf1!, while in (b) the reverse.
Neither twin is a PRA problem: in (a) there is no conflict between the castling, while in (b) RS applies: the pre-emptive Wh castling means we are in a reality where Bl cannot castle. (2020-10-31)

HHS: "Die Auflösung erscheint zunächst nicht übermäßig schwierig - die TTT schlängeln sich durch die BB hindurch, dabei geht geht der Tg8 über a6, um einen der sB dort wiedererstehen zu lassen. Im 'Gegenzug' vollbringt der Lc8 ein Husarenstück - Dd1 und Lf1 gehen auf sein Konto - aber es funktioniert nicht: Der L kommt nicht über b5 hinweg, denn weder der wT noch der sB (der dort entsteht) haben Zeit, ihm Platz zu machen. Also muß man sich was anderes ausdenken: Die sBB kann man zu einem Überkreuzschlagen der wBBa- und b- ausnutzen: Das erleichtert die Rückführung der linken Türme. Aber das genügt noch nicht: Jetzt braucht Schwarz zuviel Züge. Man muß den Gedanken an den L-Streich aufgeben. Dann können die wFiguren ein analoges Spiel der sB oben rechts ermöglichen. Schwarz schafft die Zugzahl spielend, aber Weiß braucht genau 18 Züge, und das auch nur dann, wenn Tg8 direkt nach g3 kann. Aber was sollte dann der erste wRückzug sein? Bis jetzt hat man die sFiguren problemlos einfach in der NO-Ecke wiedererstehen lassen - man muß auch da einen komplizierteren Modus wählen und darf den wBh- nicht einfach zurückgehen lassen, sondern man muß ihm die Möglichkeit geben, ebenso wie sein sGegenüber den wT auf der h-Linie durchzulassen. Das ist kompliziert und knifflig, aber so und nur so klappt es [dies Wort in Gottes Ohr! HG]. Bestechend ist der Einbau der Verführungen, die immer nur um Haaresbreite scheitern." "Gefällt mir!" (WD als Prüfer) Diese ausgekochten und tollen Kreuzschlagmanöver fand aber leider nur HHS, da es doch eine NL gibt.
Henrik Juel: The content is concealed pawn captures
Despite no visible captures White captured a2xPb3xTa4 to open the a-line for [Ta1,Pa7], and h2xTg3xLh4 with black h7xLg6xDh5 to open the h-line for [Th1,Th8]
This makes life difficult for the human solver and for Natch 3.1, who tested the first 15.0 moves correct in 40 sec.
Testing the entire proof game would need more than a couple of hours by Natch (2018-12-08)

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)

A.Buchanan: I think Yuri's correction works in both twins, and is more economical than Adrian's. However in a) the line d8-d5 must be closed for the mate to work, so sTd8 is thematic. This consideration is not actually necessary for soundness though, which is why Yuri's sTe8 is sound! So sTd8 is a total weasel in both twins! (2020-11-25)

Periführungs-Pendel des wL unter Beschäftigung des schwarzen. Der Vorstoß des d-Bauern bringt die Logik der Läufermanöver zum Leuchten (MS). Sehr schönes, geradliniges Läufermanöver, leider recht einfach (MB). Wirkt schon ziemlich abgegriffen (MOe). Herrlicher Dauerläufer über 23km (Felder) (AB).

Schwer zu durchschauende Rückkehrstrategie (MS). Schwierig und schön (FU). Oft gesehene Vorplanstaffelung (FSch). Auch aus einem bekannten Schema läßt sich offensichtlich immer wieder etwas Interessantes machen (PG). Nach guter Einleitung folgt ein sehr grobes und in 6-zügiger Länge erschlaffendes Schlußspiel (MOe). In gewohnter Kozdon-Qualität, großartiges Problem (KHS).

"Die Rose ist vielleicht die schwierigste Märchenfigur.???" (WoW)
Hier ermöglicht sie nette Echomatts.
Die Aufgabe scheint ein Überbleibsel des Länderkampfes Schweiz-Schweden zu sein, wo in der Märchenabteilung hs# mit Rosen/Nachtreiter gefordert waren. Leider ist die weiße Rose etwas schwach eingesetzt. Ebenso die wLL, die nur Fluchtfelder des sK decken. 5L/5P

MWa: "Da es mit dem wS nicht gelingt, den sS nach b6(c7) zu zwingen, muß eine stärkere Figur her: 1.g:f3 L:d6 2.f4 La3 3.Sd6 (wichtig, um den sL wieder auf die glq richtige grq Diagonale zu bringen und Feld f8 zu sichern!) L:d6 4.f5 Lh2 5.f6 Lb8 6.f7 Lh2 7.f8 ,D Sd8 8.Df5 Se6 9.Df7 (hier wurde mir der Sinn des sBb5 klar) Lb8 10.Dc7 S:c7#". "The best work I have ever seen by Velucchi", meint LV. Ich weiß nicht, ob das besonderes Lob für diese Aufgabe ist, oder vernichtende Kritik an MV-s bisherigem Schaffen. Letzteres ist durchaus nicht abwegig...

(G. Büsing). Der Satz: 1.- Kd3 2.Kb4# läßt sich mangels eines wTempos nicht aufrechterhalten. Nach der naheliegenden Einleitung 1.Lc8! Kd3 2.L:g4 Kc3 wird zunächst die sK-Flucht verhindert und außerdem rücken sTempozüge der g-sBB ins Blickfeld. 3.Le2? g4 4.Kc5 g5 5.La6 ist zu langsam, Weiß muß zunächst abwarten, ob er perikritisch oder kritisch nach a6 zurückkehren muß: 3.Le6! mit der Folge 3.- Kd3 4.Lc4+! (jetzt geht's kritisch) 4.- Kc3 5.Kc5 g4 6.La6 g5 7.Kb5 Kd3 8.Kb4#; oder 3.- g4 4.Kc5 g5 5.Lc8! (perikritisch) Kd3 6.La6+ Kc3 7.Kb5 Kc3 8.Kb4#. In dieser Variante kann Schwarz nach 4.- Kd3 5.Lc4+ usw. noch in die erste Variante überlenken (GB). KHS: Ein herrliches Tempoverlustmanöver des wL!

(S. Tkatschenko). Wie erreiche ich das potentielle Mattfeld h8? 1.Dd4? a1D!, 1.Da1?! c3? 2.Dg1 Sg3 3.Dd4! aber 1.- d4! 2.Dg1 Sg3 3.D:d4 a1D! Aber Weiß kann weitere Mattdrohungen unabhängig vom Mattfeld h8 aufstellen. Lösung: 1.Dh5+! Kd8 2.D:d5+ (der Störenfried sBd5 ist weg!) Ke8 3.Dh5:+ Kd8 4.Dd1+ (alles zurück) Ke8 5.Da1! (Durchführung des Hauptplanes mit Mattfeld h8) c3 (die schlechte Verteidigung aus dem Probespiel bleibt übrig) 6.Dg1 Sg3 7.Dd4 beliebig 8.Dh8# Thema also: Switch-back der wD, Beugung [GES]. EG: Ein Problem der einfachen Art. Trotzdem hübsch und originell. Rege wD! KHS: Schwalbenflug der wD, das beste Stück (neben 10880), einer diesmal eher mittelmäßigen Serie! Aber dafür kann der Sachbearbeiter nichts, wenn ihm die Autoren nichts Besseres anbieten [GES: das geht beim SB wieder runter wie Öl!]. LV: Very subtle!

(F. Kakabadze). 1.Ld4? La5!; 1.Tb6+! Kc5 2.Tb7+ Kc6 3.Sd4+ Kd6 4.Lb8 Kc5 5.Se6+ Kc6 6.Sd8+ Kc5 7.La7+ Kd6 8.Ld4 Le8 9.Te7 K:e7 10.Lc5#. Sehr hübsche Schlusswendung (EG). VZ analysiert: Ohne die beiden ersten Züge ist 1.Ld4? (2.Tc7#) La5! ein Angriff, der erst nach der Systemverlagerung wSf5, sKc6 zu wSd8, sKd6 greift, da er dann mit Drohwechsel verbunden ist und Schwarz mit 8.- Le8 eine analoge, aber unzureichende blockschädigende Verteidigung verbleibt. PH: Eine schöne, dualfreie Langzügeraufgabe. KHS: Beschäftigungslenkungen des sK gibt es schon sehr viele; ein alter Hut, neu aufpoliert! , Fazit (von KHS): Eine durchwachsene Serie!

KHS: der wT muß in eine bessere Ausgangsstellung manövriert werden, dies geschieht mit Beschäftigungslenkung des sK. 1.La5? scheitert noch, deshalb zuvor die Verstellung der 6. Reihe; alles in allem: ein hübsches, neudeutsch-logisches Problem!

1. Sc7? (droht 2. Sd5#) scheitert vorerst noch daran, dass der weiße Läufer noch das Feld c7 besetzt hält und außerdem an 2. ..cxd5! Mit 1. Lf4+ gxf4 wird zwar die schädliche Masse des weißen Lc7 beseitigt, das andere Hindernis 2. ...cxd5 bleibt aber bestehen. Außerdem würde nun auch der weiße Sc7 durch 2. ...Dxf7! gefesselt werden. Der schwarze Bc6 muss also vorab nach d5 gelenkt werden, und der weiße König muss die siebente Reihe verlasse. Sofort 1. Kb6? ist noch verfrüht wegen 1 ....Dxf7 2. Lf4+ gxf4 3. Sc7 Dxc7 4. Kxc7 Se6 5. Lxe6 bxa2. Weiß muss also weiter ausholen: Sofort 1. Ta5? (droht 2. Te5#) scheitert aber noch an 1. ...Dg7 und 1. ...Sxf7! 1. Deshalb ist ein weiterer Vorplan nötig: 1. S2f4 (droht 2. Te2#) Te1. Auf 2. Ta5 (droht 2. Te5#) verbleibt Schwarz jetzt nur noch die unzureichende Verteidigung 2. ...Sxf7 (die schwarze Dame kann nicht mehr das Feld f7 erreichen). Nun ist 3. Ta1 was vorher nichts einbrachte) mit einer Drohung verbunden 4. Txe1 Lxe1 5. Te2# Als Verteidigung bleibt nur 3. ...Txa1+ 4. Kxb6 der weiße König hat mit Tempo die siebente Reihe verlassen; nun folgt 4. ...Te1 (Beschäftigung). Jetzt funktioniert alles wie am Schnürchen 5. Sd5+ cxd5 (Lenkung) 6. Lf4+ (Opferräumung) gxf4 7. Sxc7 bel 8. Sd5#
Die weitere inhaltliche Vertiefung des Vorläufers (Problemesis 2001, 7#; vgl. Schwalbe 196, S.511) hat diesem Problem gut getan: alles in allem: ein Meisterwerk der neudeutschen Problemschule!

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!"

Laut "simple Two-move Themes" war das Publikationsdatum allerdings "Jan., 1886"

[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."
