Rosalie Fay: White has lost only the bishops. So the pawn on c5 is not [Pa7] (because that entails 2 White units captured on black squares). White has played axbxcxdxe7, dxe, fxe, hxg, gxfxe. Black has 7 units, so white pawns have captured all missing Black units, but none on the a or h files.

Black has 2 pawns on the c-file, so one has captured. Thus [bPa7] and [bPh7] pawns have collectively captured no more than once. So at least one of them must have promoted, in order to either get to a file where White made a capture, or replace a captured unit; it didn't capture en route to promotion, so it displaced a white rook and thus spoilt one White castling right.

White would mate by 1 Rd1 & 2 Rd6 or 1 Rf1 & 2 Rf6, except that Black threatens Qxe2+. So either 1 0-0 or 1 0-0-0, though it's impossible to say which is legal. (2022-11-24)

Einer der sTT muß nach a8 zurückgestellt werden.
play all play one stop play next play all
Lösung aus '64 Schach-Scherze': "Da noch sämtliche schwarze Bauern vorhanden sind, kann keiner der beiden schwarzen Türme durch Umwandlung entstanden sein.
Nun kann aber der schwarze Turm von a8 unmöglich 'herausgekommen' sein. Mithin ist einer der beiden schwarzen Türme nach a8 (oder a7 oder b8) zurückzustellen.
Nach dieser Korrektur ist Schwarz von selbst matt."
in '64 Schach-Scherze' nachgedruckt mit der Forderung "Matt in gar keinem Zug"

Yoav Ben-Zvi: An attempt at a coherent argument that reveals the intricate sequence of events in the resolution while refuting substantial alternatives:
The promotion of wBc3, on d8 or f8, requires 2 captures by the promoting wP. These, together with the captures by wPd3 and wPb4, account for all 4 missing Black pieces. Black captured [wBc1] at home. The other 7 missing White pieces were captured by bPs. [wBf1] cannot be released (by wPe2xd3) until [bPh7] plays bPd3xc2 completing the capture of 5 White pieces. Therefore [wBf1] was captured by bPd7xBc6 (the remaining capture by Black on a light colored square), releasing [bBc8]. This means that [wBf1] is released (by wPe2xd3) before [bBc8] is released (by capturing the previously released wB on c6) so the bB could not have been the piece captured on d3. It also could not be captured on b4 (dark colored square) so it was captured by White's promoting pawn. This means the promotion could not have been played by capture from e7 as that would imply that the 2 captures by the promoting pawn were both on dark colored squares in contradiction with the requirement to capture [bBc8]. Therefore the promotion move was wPd7-d8=B with bK standing outside the squares c8,d7,d8,e8.
Looking backward: To avoid White retrostalemate the first 2 retractions must be -1...bRa2-a1+ -2.wPa3xb4.
After this, unlocking the South-West cage and extracting bRa2 requires retraction of wPe2xd3 which requires previous uncapture of wB by bPd7xBc6, so it can be retracted home to f1. bP standing on d7 implies that a bB must previously be uncaptured and retracted home to c8, preceded by retracting BPe7-e6 to clear the path of uncaptured bB to c8. Retreat of bP to e7 is preceded by uncapture and return home of [bBf8]. With both bBs locked at home and bP on e7 the Black Central cage is locked by retracting bPd7xBc6 so bK and bQ must also be retracted home first. It follows that bKa4 needs to exit the West cage before it has been unlocked (to get back home to e8 before the Black Central cage is locked). The bK cannot exit via b5 as this implies retraction of wPc3-c4+ but, with c3 occuppied by wP, bRa2 does not have a valid exit path (not via c3 as it is obstructed by wP or via f1 as it will be occupied by wB). wP standing on c4 prevents retracting bN away from a5 so bK cannot exit via a5. The only valid exit of the bK is via b4 implying retracton of wPa2-a3 which requires bRa2 to retract to a1 (vacating a2 for the wP) which requires provision of a shield, standing on b1, to protect wKc1 from bRa1.
After the unpromotion of wBc3, White has only pawn retractions left to make until a White officer is uncaptured. This is not enough to allow Black to complete the retro-maneuvers required in preparation for retracting bPd7xBc6 (getting bBs,bK,bQ home). It follows that, at some point in the middle of its preparation maneuver, Black will need to uncapture a White officer which provides the tempo retractions needed to complete the maneuver. This is only possible by bPa7xb6. With bP standing on a7, [bRa8] cannot be retracted home via the a file so it must retract to its original corner via row 8 before the bB is locked at c8. This implies that [bRa8] is uncaptured by a wP prior to unlocking of the cage.
Uncaptures by White prior to the unlocking of the South-West cage (one available on b4 and two by pawn unpromoted from wBc3) include uncaptures of both bBs and a bR since, as noted in the above analysis, all 3 must be uncaptured and retracted home before retracting bPd7xBc6 (all of which precedes the unlocking of the South-East cage). This means that the bN is uncaptured later (on d3) so it cannot provide the shield on b1. The shield also could not be provided by [bBc8] as this bishop must be returned home when it is needed to provide the shield. The only remaining possibility is that the shield on b1 is provided by a wN that is uncaptured by bPa7xNb6. The wN on b1 is immobile until the wK can be retracted away from c1 so here too, once the unpromotion occurs Black must perform the preparations for retraction of bPd7xBc6 (which now includes return of the uncaptured bR to a8 or b8) under time pressure, completing the required maneuvers before White runs out of tempo retractions. Having determined the structural elements it is not too difficult to construct a resolution that succeeds in preparing for retraction of bPd7xBc6 before White runs out of tempo retractions. The resolution maintains the following: delay the unpromotion (known from analysis above to be wPd7-d8=B) while retracting bK to b8; bQ to d4 and bB (uncaptured on b4) to f8 and continuing by retracting -1.wBd8-? Pe7-e6 -2.Pd7-d8=B Kc8-b8 -3.Pe6xRd7+ Rd8-d7 -4.Pf5xBe6 0-0-0 -5.Pf4-f5 Bc8-e6 -6.Pf3-f4 Qd8-d4 -7.Pf2-f3 Pd7xBf6 -8.Bc6-? Nc6-a5. Following this the wB is retracted to f1 allowing the unlocking of the cage by wPe2xNd3 and bRa1 is retracted back home to h8 via c1,c3. One of the White pieces uncaptured by bPc2 unpromotes on h8. The alternative of uncapturing the bR on b4 (instead of bB) fails to complete the preparations on time.
To draw attention to the rich, unconditional, content of the resolution the stipulation could be "Squares that must have been occupied by bRa1". This problem deserves a full SPG. The best I can manage is a game of 53.0 moves. (2018-12-23)

play all play one stop play next play all
Henrik Juel: In Losing Chess the kings are not royal
In Kamikaze RI each capture removes one white and one black man
So the empty board is legal, and any position with one man (KDTLSP) is illegal
An Illegal Cluster is an illegal position that becomes legal when you remove any one non-king
My guess would be 2x6x64 = 768 or possibly 2x5x64 = 640
Where did I go wrong? (2020-07-12)
Henrik Juel: maybe 768 - 32 = 736
where 32 is the number of ways you can put a pawn on row 1 or 8 (2022-10-13)
A.Buchanan: In an “orthodox” illegal cluster, a pawn couldn’t be on the first or last rank unless it was the only non-king unit. There’s probably no principle to cover this rather dull corner-case KPvK. Ask HG! (2022-10-14)
A.Buchanan: And in orthodoxy, do two adjacent kings constitute an illegal cluster? There are no non-king units to remove, so the condition is vacuously satisfied (2022-10-14)
Henrik Juel: On your last comment, Andrew:
Two adjacent kings do not constitute an IC. The position is illegal, and when you remove any non-king you get the same illegal position (2022-10-14)
A.Buchanan: Define that a box is SAFE if it contains no radioactive objects. So is every empty box safe? Yes! :-) (2022-10-14)

Motto: "Our play"
Originalforderung 1.White played last, retract his move 2.Black retracts his last move 3.Black plays so as to enable-- 4.White to mate 5.No Queens
A.Buchanan: The issue is that wPb3 covers a4. Rotate the board clockwise by 90 deg & shift wPc7 to c5 gives unique queenless solution R: 1. Se6xTf4 g3xTf2, dann 1. Tf5 Te2#, together with 68 queeny tries. (2022-11-13)
Adrian Storisteanu: The wQ is, unfortunately, extremely deadly. In your suggested position, there are still cooks, e.g.,
- 1.Kg6xPg7 g3xQf2 & 1.g3-g2 Qf2-e3#
- 1.Sg2xRf4 e3xQf2 & 1.Rf4-e4 Qf2-f6# (2022-11-13)
A.Buchanan: Yes I make no attempt to remove the "keine Damen" constraint, which is a kind of thematic aid that Baird employs quite often. deadpos identifies 69 solutions in the rotated position 8/6K1/8/2Ppk3/5N2/8/5p2/8, of which 68 require a queen (2022-11-13)
Adrian Storisteanu: The "no queens" constraint seems here almost thematic, as the intended solution works just as fine with a wQ uncapture: - 1.Sc5xRe6 h7xQg6 & 1.Re6-d6 Qg6-g5#... (2022-11-13)
Adrian Storisteanu: (What is "deadpos"?) (2022-11-13)
Adrian Storisteanu: A quick fix along your intention is also -wPb3,+bPc4 (90 queeny tries). (2022-11-13)
A.Buchanan: deadpos is a software engine that determines very efficiently whether a position is dead or not, and allows stipulations such as h=, hdp, h#. Simple retractions are also important for DP last move problems, and since no-one who's written help retractor functionality has ever made it public, this is of use for testing neglected problems such as Mrs Baird's, which have little to do with DP rule. A broader name for this engine will probably emerge at some point.
Your fix -wPb3, + bPc4 also works! (2022-11-13)

[The judge was Thomas Volet]
Judge’s comments: What is a judge to do with a composition containing so many features valued by that judge? Enjoy it, of course! An elegant arid setting (without obtrusive force or King in check) conceals the depth of the retroplay. The precise timing represents the best exploitation of the Kislyak theme. In addition to his ever-present clarity of logic, Michel often gives us much humor in his compositions. Naturally the Bg8 is not the one that started on f1! The slant pawn on h2 shows Michel’s long memory for tournament stipulations, and thankfully, spares the audience from inventory tedium that we all experience but are reluctant to acknowledge. A fun composition, and what more can be asked? (2015-12-04)

Judge's comment [Thomas Brand]: "This elegant proof game seems me original enough compared with Hashimoto's Probleemblad 1999, 3rd Prize, (PDB P1000642), even though the theme is not doubly set. The only missing white man is a Rook captured at e6, but Ra1 could not leave home."
Henrik Juel: The white plan is obvious, and Black ensures uniqueness by putting his men to be captured on squares, where White can go anyway, and by a late king's walk
This proof game is an enjoyable solving object showing that man can beat the computer; Euclide was still trying to find a strategy (a list of moves, possibly infeasible, that leads to the diagram position), when I had solved the problem and written the present lines...

Joost de Heer: This is probably Kriegspiel? If there are no black pieces, the knight path on moves 25/26 can go over f6 as well. (2022-10-25)
A.Buchanan: Good catch, Joost. The black units (because of bK) are necessary. I haven’t heard the term Kriegspiel used to describe this. (2022-10-25)
Henrik Juel: This is a series proof game (where only White moves, and he may not check with an intermediate move)
I see no relation to the fairy condition Kriegspiel (2022-10-25)

SB: "Sehr schwer zu lösen, weil kaum Anhaltspunkte in der Diagrammstellung sichtbar sind. Letztendlich schält sich thematisch ein Donati und ein Anti-Pronkin auf weißer Seite heraus. Als Rätsel ok, thematisch zeigt die folgende Aufgabe, was möglich ist." MRic hingegen: "Der wUW-Th8 verlässt sein UW-Feld, nur um später wieder dorthin zurückzukehren und geschlagen zu werden, wonach letztendlich sein Original-Bruder von h1 seinen Tod rächt und seinen Platz auf dem UW-Feld einnimmt. Das ist wieder ein schönes Stück aus dem Hause Thannheiser - kurz, prägnant und witzig, hat mir sehr gut gefallen!" KHS: "Interessant, wie der wT nach h8 gelangt." TZ: "Hier sind die Spuren des sS und whB noch deutlich zu erkennen, so dass die ersten Züge recht klar sind. Die linke mit der rechten Hälfte dann zu verbinden, hat noch ein wenig Mühe gekostet, da ich es länger mit einem wL auf h8 versucht hatte." JB: "Ein starkes T-Duell mit w 'Vorweg-Phönix-Turm' - noch einmal Ceriani-frolkin." HG: "In Fast-Homebase wird ein geschlagener Donati-Turm durch einen Anti-Pronkin-Turm ersetzt. Dupont möchte das allerdings sogar orthodox inzwischen gern doppelt gesetzt haben. Was bei Schlagschachaufgaben in der Regel den Kunstgenuss trübt, sind die (offenbar unumgänglichen) nichtthematischen Schlagfälle, die erkennbar auch die Konstruktion erleichtern."

play all play one stop play next play all
White's pre-diagram move couldn't have been a capture, so the 50-move counter has already been set to 1. Thus, White must play 50. Kxf5 in order to reset the counter, or else Black will draw.

See P1372258

http://matplus.net/start.php?px=1609121267&app=forum&act=posts&fid=gen&tid=2590
Henrik Juel: 3 and 5 captures by white and black pawns are obvious, leaving [Ph2,Ph7], so the remaining white capture was hxg (with promotions on g8 and h1) or officerxPh (with promotion on h8) (2022-11-05)

Schwarz schlug axb und fxg, der weiße Doppelbauer e2e3 erfodert eine weißen Schlag, damit sind alle fehlenden Steine erklärt. Der fehlende sBd7 mußte schlaglos auf d1 umwandeln, bevor er geschlagen werden konnte, also stammt wBe3 von d2, und die wBBa2 und f2 haben auf a8 bzw. f8 umgewandelt, bevor sie geschlagen wurden. Nur zuletzt R: 1. ... c7-c5 verhindert das weiße Retropatt, also ist der ep_Schlüssel legal.

4. Bd6xc7 Bd7-d5 5. Bc2-c3 Lc8-e6 6. Dd1-d2 Dd8xc7
7. Bf2-f4 Dc7xc3 8. Bf4-f5 Dc3-h3 9. Bf5-f6 Ke8-d7
10. Bf6xg7 Bf7-f5 11. Dd2-a5 Sh6-f7 12. Bg7-g8=D Lf8-h6
13. Da5xa8 Lh6-e3 14. Da8-a6 Bf5-f4 15. Da6-d6 Kd7xd6
16. Dg8-c8 Kd6-e5 17. Dc8-c2 Th8-g8 18. Dc2-d1 Tg8-g6 (2022-10-03)
Mario Richter: The black rook is on g5 (and not on g6)! - diagram is now corrected. (2022-10-04)
Henrik Juel: Thanks, Mario
The same cook works with 18... Tg8-g5, so there may be more diagram errors (2022-10-04)
Mario Richter: You are right, Henrik, I overlooked that a black pawn is on h6 and not on h7, I changed zhe diagram accordingly. (2022-10-04)
Henrik Juel: Now C+ Euclide 1.01 (2022-10-04)
Henrik Juel: Actually C++ (meaning no solution in 17.5, and surely no shorter solution) (2022-10-04)
